After months of hearing from state departments and constituents about the issues that matter to them, the 12-member Joint Finance Committee begins debate, called “markup,” over the state budget.  Governor John Carney’s proposed budget announced earlier this year balanced on a $200M increase in tax revenue and $200M in cuts to state programs.  The legislature is discussing a plan that would increase taxes by $100M, requiring more cuts to balance.
