ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Maryland legislative panel is scheduled to make state spending recommendations for the next fiscal year.
The Spending Affordability Committee is scheduled to meet Wednesday afternoon. The panel of 23 lawmakers from the House and Senate has made recommendations to the executive branch since 1982. The panel also has three citizen members.
The panel's recommendations are not binding on the governor, but the executive branch has come close to the recommendations in the past.
The governor is scheduled to submit the state budget for the next fiscal year in January.
