O'Malley's Budget Secretary Asks Agencies to Find Savings

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Gov. Martin O'Malley's budget secretary has asked the heads of state agencies to help find money to make up for another drop in revenue projections.

The Bureau of Revenue Estimates reported earlier this week that general fund revenues collected through April 30 were almost $200 million below the March revenue estimate.

The O'Malley administration will be working on a budget reduction plan to submit to the Board of Public Works in late July.

T. Eloise Foster, O'Malley's budget secretary, wrote Friday that ongoing deterioration of the global and national economy "requires that we continue this difficult process."
