Survey: What Should Be in Maryland’s Budget?
The 2017 legislature will see more discussion of cutting state taxes (less revenue for needed services) or calls to ‘streamline government’ to deal with deficit concerns (again, less revenue for needed services). These proposals will assume that we’re already meeting the social and human needs of Marylanders and there’s room to cut back without really harming anyone. After all, ‘nonprofits can always just pick up the slack.’

Is there a publicly funded program or service you work with that is effective but has a long waiting list because there isn’t enough state support? These are the kinds of things we want to hear about.
