Voters approved a proposed amendment to Maryland’s Constitution to allow the General Assembly to increase, decrease or reallocate funds in the governor’s proposed budget each year starting in 2024.
Maryland is one of the only states that doesn’t currently allow state legislators to increase or reallocate money.
Supporters said legislators and their constituents would have more say in where money is allocated, while opponents worried it will lead to elected officials trying to grab more money for their districts.
Voters also authorized "sports and events betting for the primary purpose of raising revenue for education” in the state. The General Assembly will still have to approve legislation to allow sports betting.
Four ballot questions in Montgomery County are competing proposals on property taxes and the composition of the Montgomery County Council.
Question A would prohibit the Council from setting a property tax rate that exceeds the rate of the prior year unless the Council unanimously approved an increase. This question was added by the Council.
Question B would remove the Council’s authority to change the tax rate above inflation. It basically removes the council’s authority from ever setting the tax rate above inflation.
Question C would add two seats to the Council, growing it from nine to 11 members. There would be seven districts (there are five currently) and four at-large members.
Question D would eliminate at-large members of the Council and create nine districts. The number of Council members would remain at nine.
Prince George's County
There were five questions on the ballot that ask voters about whether the county can borrow money and issue bonds for more than $178 million for transportation facilities, more than $28 million for library projects, more than $44 million for public safety, $133 million to fund county buildings and more than $121 for community colleges. If they’re all passed, it would allow the county to borrow half a billion dollars for new projects.
