Lawmakers from the Legislative Black Caucus were talking tough in Annapolis Thursday as the Democrats, mostly from Prince George’s County and Baltimore City, continue to digest the impacts of Gov. Larry Hogan’s first budget. The Caucus decried cuts to education and healthcare that would disproportionately affect communities of color.
Baltimore City Del. Barbara Robinson, who leads the caucus, says education cuts have business consequences. She estimates that schools in just Prince George’s and Baltimore City could lose as many as 1,200 teachers.
