Fix the Fund
When Marylanders approved—and then expanded—
casino gaming, they thought the new
revenue would increase education funding.
But instead, Gov. Hogan has used $1.4 billion
of that money to plug holes in other parts
of his budgets. The bill to Fix the Fund (HB 1697/SB 1122) will stop
this budget gimmick, providing a $500 million
increase in school funding—a significant first
step in closing the $2.9 billion annual underfunding gap of Maryland public schools. Contact your legislators and ask them to Fix the Fund!
