Governor-Elect Larry Hogan will need to deliver a budget only a few days after taking office. Fraser Smith talks to The Daily Record's Bryan Sears about the state's budget deficit for the current year and the projections for the years ahead.
Republican Larry Hogan will be Maryland’s next governor. Now he has just a few short months to organize a smooth hand-off from outgoing Gov. Martin O’Malley.
At an Annapolis news conference Wednesday morning, Hogan said he’s turned his focus from the campaign to governing. “We’ve got a lot of work to do. Our state economy is in real trouble. We’ve focused on that for years and now we’ve got to roll up our sleeves and get to work trying to turn our state around,” Hogan said.
