Online game simulates Maryland’s budget woes

If you’re concerned about the State budget, but unsure what the policy options are that face the Administration and General Assembly — you might find this online budget simulation to be an enlightening tool. The game gives you options to make cost-cutting decisions, weight revenue options, and consider short-term and long-term budget effects — and it’s all placed right in the middle of Maryland’s own fiscal dilemma.

The Maryland Budget Map Game was developed by the Maryland Budget and Tax Policy Institute and the University of Baltimore’s School of Information Arts and Technology.
