Augustine Commission Digs Deep On Revenues, Budget, and Process

The Maryland Economic Development and Business Climate Commission convened for a full day of research and inquiry on July 22 in Annapolis, and reviewed detailed information on the state’s tax structure, revenue estimating practices, and budget process. The Commission is slated to continue its work through the year to identify areas for increasing Maryland’s competitiveness.
