1-10-11: The Deficit

January 10, 2011 at 8:10 am Leave a comment

The Maryland General Assembly convenes on Wednesday for the 2011 session. On January 21, they’ll see the first version of the new state budget. There’s a $1.6 billion deficit to be dealt with, and once the budget is released, Governor Martin O’Malley has said, “no one will be happy.”

Why not? Sheilah asks University of Maryland Baltimore County political science professor Roy Meyers.

We spoke to Roy Meyers about the deficit back in October, just before the election, and just after he’d released a paper called “Budget Questions for the Maryland Election and Beyond.” Take a listen.
