Senate Budget Package Moving Forward

With lengthy debate on Wednesday, and a final vote expected Thursday, the Senate is expected to pass its budget package — four separate but connected bills.

From the Baltimore Sun coverage (limited free viewings):

On Thursday, the Senate met for two sessions and debated four interrelated bills that the Democratic Senate leadership wanted to pass as part of the budget. Measures included the standard budget bill along with another bill that made legislative adjustments needed for the budget.

Also, the Senate debated a bill that would allow the state — in some extreme circumstances — to seize county income taxes and use those funds to bolster local education funding.
