Prince George's Running Out of Money, Out of Time

County budget shortfall grows from $56M to $73M

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. -- A potential budget shortfall in Prince George's County that had been estimated at $56 million has now ballooned to $73 million, the County Council learned Wednesday.

County budget director Jonathan Seeman told council members that the tax revenue from home sales is still falling, making the county's financial situation worse.

The county has been enforcing furloughs on government employees, making them take two weeks of unpaid leave by mid-June to reduce the shortfall.

Seeman said county leaders are also looking at other ways to address the increased deficit.
