General Assembly Passes $52.4 Billion Budget Plan With Broad Support

April 5, 2021

The Maryland General Assembly gave final approval Friday to a $52.4 billion budget that House Appropriations Chairwoman Maggie L. McIntosh (D-Baltimore City) said is worthy of a moniker: “I call this The Recovery Act,” she said. The budget plan — dramatically expanded from the $49.35 billion budget originally introduced by Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) in January thanks to a rebounding economy and federal stimulus funds — provides increased financial assistance to the most vulnerable Marylanders, expands education funding to get children back to school and address pandemic-related learning losses, and replenishes depleted state savings accounts.
