They failed to pass a plan that would avoid $250 million in budget cuts.
Monday night lawmakers in Annapolis adjourned at midnight after failing to pass a plan that would avoid $250 million in budget cuts.
The plan would have increased taxes on those who make more than $100,000 per year but instead relies on the cuts.
Senator David Brinkley said they passed a plan that most wanted to avoid leaving many lawmakers unhappy.
"It is probable that the Governor will want to call a special session for us to take up some sort of tax package; whether that happens before July 1st or not, I don't know. I think there is a lot of confused people at this point in time. What we do know is we passed the budget, it has some automatic reductions in it, some call it the doomsday budget; I call it living within your means budget because it takes state spending to the current years level," Senator Brinkley said.
The special session would allow more time to work on the revenue package and look at other issues like that expansion of gambling.
