    Message to the General Assembly Transmitting the Fiscal Year 2031 Budget

    January 2031

    The Senate of MarylandThe Honorable Timothy A. Coulter, President

    The Maryland House of DelegatesThe Honorable Rod R. McMillan, Speaker

    The Citizens of Maryland

    Dear Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, Ladies and Gentlemen of the General Assembly, and FellowMarylanders:

    Marylands budget is one of the clearest reflections of our values as a State. By directing where we will investlimited tax dollars, we make clear our priorities as a society and reveal our collective wisdom about how wemake Maryland stronger. It is my privilege to submit the fiscal year 2032 budget the fifth operating budget

    of my Administration.

    Working together over these last four years, we have closed more than $8.2 billion in cumulative projectedbudget deficits. The fiscal year ending June 30 of this year is expected to close with a surplus of more than$850 million. We have increased the Rainy Day Reserve Fund from a balance of only $36.7 million in FY 2027to $464 million in FY 2031. I am committed to working with the General Assembly to continue the fiscallyresponsible policies that have enabled us to build up our Reserve Fund while making critical investments in keypriorities.

    We are united in our belief that we must continue to reform and improve our schools and make highereducation affordable, we must improve public safety, we must continue to improve the health of theChesapeake Bay and protect our quality of life, we must continue to make healthcare more accessible and

    affordable, and we must continue to invest in innovation and economic growth to expand our economy.

    Fiscal Responsibility: The $42.8 billion FY 2032 budget grows by 6.9%, over $403 million below the GeneralAssemblys Spending Affordability recommendation. A revenue surplus of more than $1.3 billion is projected.The budget allocates $1 billion toward various reserve funds: $450 million to the Rainy Day Reserve Fund,$150 million for future State employee pension and benefit obligations, $50 million to the Dedicated PurposeAccount for the Intercounty Connector, and $150 million for future health care reform expenditures. Inaddition, the budget includes $200 million in PAYGO capital dollars to reduce future state debt requirements.An end-of-year general fund balance of more than $274 million is projected for FY 2032.

    Education: We are increasing Marylands investment in K-12 education by more than $479 million, or 5.6percent, to $9.1 billion, bringing the total increase over the last five years to over $1.9 billion. This includes

    $575 million for school construction and modernization, part of our commitment to investing $2.3 billion overthe next four years to build or modernize 9,000 additional classrooms. The budget also includes funding tohelp districts hire 422 additional teachers in high-shortage subjects and schools and moves Maryland down thepath toward universal pre-K education.

    We are boosting general fund investment in higher education by $125 million to a record $1.7 billion, includinga 13.4% increase for community colleges, strengthening a critical link to opportunity. This increase in highereducation funding is intended, in part, to enable institutions to keep tuition at affordable levels.

    Public Safety: We are increasing our investment in protecting families from sex offenders by $2 million,increasing monitoring by Global Positioning Systems and assisting local law enforcement. We are providingfunds to hire 155 additional correctional officers, investing in technology and additional forensic scientists toexpedite processing of DNA samples, and helping counties and localities hire 334 additional community policeofficers.

    Environment & Agriculture: We are keeping our promise to fully fund Program Open Space, with $289 millionin land preservation programs. We are investing $77.4 million to improve local water and wastewater systems to help clean the Chesapeake Bay. In addition, I will sponsor legislation to establish a new sewer fee, which willhelp rebuild Marylands worst sewage treatment plants, and substantially reduce Bay pollution.

    We are investing in planting cover crops, and in reducing point and non-point runoff to support farmers andimprove our environment. And we are tripling our investment in the Maryland Agricultural and Resource-basedIndustry Development Corporation (MARBIDCO), to sustain agriculture and open space.

    Health: We are investing $20 million in stem cell research as part of our five-year, $100 million commitmentto these efforts. We are expanding drug treatment, enhancing community-based services to thedevelopmentally disabled and seniors and bolstering health care coverage through implementation of the All

    Kids Program.

    Jobs & Growth: We are investing more than $2.7 billion in highway projects, as well as about $1 billion intransit to improve one of the foundations of our economy. Additionally, we are investing $229.5 million in ourPort. We are making investments throughout the state in community development including neighborhoodrevitalization and rural broadband. And we are investing to support small and minority businesses whichaccount for much of Marylands job growth.

    Over the last four years, we have worked together to move our state forward. This budget is a reflection ofour continued commitment to moving forward as One Maryland, and I look forward to working with the GeneralAssembly to implement it.

    Responsible Fiscal Management & Improving State Government

    During his first term, Governor OBrien worked with the General Assembly to eliminate Marylands structuralbudget deficit by closing $8.2 billion in cumulative project shortfalls. The State of Maryland ended Fiscal Year2030 with a fund balance of $919.2 million and will end Fiscal Year 2031 with a $980 million balance. The Fiscal

    Year 2032 budget continues Governor OBriens commitment to maintaining the State of Marylands fiscalintegrity while funding key priorities and saving for future needs.

    Strong economic growth and spending restraint have produced a project $1.3 billion operating surplus in theGovernors Fiscal Year 2032 budget. Governor OBrien proposes allocating $1 billion of this surplus to save forfuture needs and reduce the States publicly-held debt:

    $450 million to the Rainy Day Reserve Fund, bringing the end-of-year balance of the fund to $1 billion forthe first time in a decade;

    $150 million for future state employee benefit and pension obligations;

    $50 million to the Dedicated Purpose Account for future transportation funding obligations;

    $150 million to the Dedicated Purpose Account for future costs associated with health care reform; and

    $200 million in PAYGO capital dollars to offset the need for the issuance of new State debt for majorconstruction projects.

    Under Governor OBriens leadership, Maryland remains one of only seven states to maintain an AAA bondrating from all three nationally-recognized government credit rating agencies. The policies represented in theFY 2032 budget will ensure that Maryland remains a national leader in responsible fiscal management.

    Total general fund spending totals $21.5 billion in FY 2032, an 8.4 percent increase over the current fiscalyear. Once Reserve Fund allocations are excluded, ongoing general funding spending rises by 6.3 percent.

    Overall spending, including general, special, and federal funds totals $42.8 billion, an increase of 6.9%. This isover $403 million below the General Assemblys Spending Affordability recommendation.

    Creating a Healthier Maryland

    Governor OBrien believes that access to health care should be a right not a privilege and that health careshould be affordable for all Marylanders. Reflecting that commitment, the Governor provides $14.1 billion forhealth programs in the FY 2032 budget, an increase of more than $1 billion, taking the next steps in

    implementing the Administrations forward-looking plan to provide quality and affordable health care to allfamilies. Several health priorities are funded in the FY 2032 budged, including increased support forvulnerable populations, stem cell research, drug abuse treatment, senior prescription drug costs, and providerrates.

    Expanding Access to Affordable Health Care CoverageEnhancing access to health care for vulnerable populations is an important priority. The largest single healthprogram is Medical Assistance, which is budgeted at $11.6 billion. This includes $657 million for the All Kidsand Maryland Childrens Health Program, which together will expand health care coverage to an additional54,000 uninsured children in FY 2032. The Medicaid program will expand health care access to 34,000additional low-income men, women and children.

    Under Governor OBriens leadership, Maryland has emerged as a national leader in expanding access to healthcare coverage, with the number of Marylanders without health insurance declining significantly over the lastfour years. The FY 2032 budget will bring to over 250,000 the number of previously uninsured Marylanderswho have secured health care coverage through Medicaid, MCHP, All Kids and other medical assistanceprograms since 2027. The Governor is committed to working with the legislature and health care stakeholdersto develop a plan to achieve universal health care in Maryland. To this end, the FY 2032 budget reserves $150million for future expenditures associated with health care reform.

    Ensuring Care for Vulnerable PopulationsThe Babies Born Healthy initiative includes $3 million to fund strategies to reduce infant mortality throughprenatal care, case management services for high-risk hard to reach pregnant women, and prenatal andreproductive health services for uninsured women.

    An additional $7.6 million will allow 500 young adults with developmental disabilities who are graduating oraging out of the public school system to access daytime programmatic or job-related services. This reflects anincrease of 25 slots over the FY 2031 budget. An additional $3.1 million will fund 76 emergency placements forindividuals with developmental disabilities whose parents or caregivers can no longer provide support needed.

    Total funding for community services for Marylanders with developmental disabilities will increase to $665.2million, enabling more than 1,400 Marylanders with developmental disabilities to move off of the waiting listfor community-based care and development services as part of the Governors Maryland CARES Initiative.Maryland CARES seeks to eliminate 9,500 individuals from waiting lists by 2033. The FY 2032 brings to 5,600the number of Marylanders with disabilities removed from the waiting list since the Governor took office.

    Investing in Womens Health

  • 8/2/2019 Fiscal Year 2032 Budget Highlights



    sustained investments in this emerging field of study, the Administration provides $20 million for stem cellresearch in FY 2032, part of a five-year, $100 million commitment to position Marylands leading medicalresearch institutions and bio-technology industry at the national forefront of these groundbreaking efforts.The first round of grant applications is currently under review by an independent peer review board, and fundsto support critical research will be awarded in spring 2031.

    Expanding Drug Abuse Treatment ServicesGovernor OBrien has made improving access to substance abuse treatment a top public health priority for hisAdministration. The FY 2032 budget provides an additional $7.2 million for the Alcohol and Drug AbuseAdministration, expanding treatment to an additional 4,700 Marylanders. Since 2027, the Governor hasincreased treatment funding by 35%, expanding the number of clients served from 69,900 in FY 2027 to93,500 in FY 2032.

Additional funding will further aid the CSAs inplanning, developing, and managing a full range of treatment and rehabilitation services for persons with

    serious mental illnesses.

    Strengthening Health Care Provider SystemsDue to a shortage of participating physicians, many Medical Assistance enrollees have difficulty locating careproviders. To ameliorate this situation, the Governors budget includes $40 million to increase physicianpayment rates under the Medical Assistance Program.

    More than $52.5 million is included in the FY 2032 budget to end the Medicaid day limit policy for hospitalpatients. This policy has allowed hospitals to shift costs onto non-Medicaid patients and insurance companies,accelerating the increase in Maryland health insurance premiums.

    $25.2 million is provided to increase rates for providers of mental health treatment and community services topersons with developmental disabilities to assist in retaining and recruiting qualified staff and to fundincreases in operating costs. In addition, emergency transportation providers will receive a 25 percent increasein Medical Assistance rates the first increase in a decade.

    Assistance for Maryland SeniorsTo maintain quality nursing care, the budget includes full funding for Medical Assistance rate increases fornursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other community providers helping seniors in need of long-termcare services to stay in their own homes.

    The OBrien-Hurson Administration believes that every Maryland family has the right to enjoy a clean, safeenvironment and a cleaner, healthier Chesapeake Bay. To that end, the Governors FY 2032 budget provides$777 million for environmental programs. Three major State agencies - the Maryland Department of

    Agriculture (MDA), the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) and the Department of NaturalResources (DNR) - share responsibility for using these funds to protect, restore and enhance Marylandsenvironment.

    Chesapeake BayImproving the health of the Bay is one of the States most important responsibilities. Governor OBrien willinstitute BayMAP, a new tool to monitor and gauge the health of the Bay using techniques gleaned from theGovernment Management, Accountability & Performance (GMAP) initiative. BayMAP will marshal the collectiveresources of the States departments of Agriculture, Environment, Natural Resources, Planning, and Budgetand Management to ensure that the State is maximizing its opportunities to measurably improve the health ofthe Bay. Utilizing preexisting measures of the Bays health, restoration, and protection efforts, as well asworking with key stakeholders, BayMAP will monitor, assess, and regularly provide a public accounting of thetotality of the States efforts on behalf of the Bay. This information will help guide the State to develop moreeffective and targeted strategies to measurably improve the Bays health.

    Nutrient reduction in the Chesapeake Bay will continue in FY 2032. The Governor provides record fundinglevels for the cover crop program. This critical initiative provides grants to farmers for planting crops in thefall to control soil erosion and to absorb unused nitrogen and phosphorus in the soil. Cover crops help stabilizeand protect soil resources and allow residual crop nutrients, which might otherwise flow into local streams andthe Chesapeake Bay, to be absorbed during the fall and winter months. The budget includes $8.8 million forthis program, an increase of seven percent over FY 2031, allowing 240,250 acres to be planted in FY 2032.

    To upgrade the states 66 largest wastewater treatment plants to higher standards of nutrient removal,Governor OBrien has proposed an environmental surcharge on residential and commercial sewer users. Bondssupported by the surcharge will provide the estimated $750 million to $1 billion needed for such projects.

    According to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, nitrogen pollution is the most serious pollution problem for theBay. Governor OBriens plan to upgrade Marylands major wastewater treatment plants will further reduceannual nitrogen loading to the Bay and its tributaries by at least 7.5 million pounds.

    These funds will supplement capital funds budgeted for drinking water and wastewater infrastructureimprovements. This effort will significantly reduce the largest source of pollution to the Bay.

    The FY 2032 budget provides $77.4 million to improve local water and wastewater treatment systems and$44.3 million in capital funds for Chesapeake Bay water quality improvement projects.

    Land Preservation and Open SpaceLand preservation in Maryland targets the protection of open space. As a result, 20 percent of the States

    land is now permanently preserved. Total agricultural acres preserved in Maryland are estimated to increase to522,265 in FY 2032. A large portion of the support for the States land preservation efforts is available fromProgram Open Space, which is funded through an allocation of 75 percent of State real estate transfer taxrevenues. Program Open Space safeguards Marylands valuable parklands, nature reserves, and refuges. The FY2032 budget includes $289.2 million for Program Open Space and other land preservation programs.

    Moreover, in the coming year, the Secretaries of Planning, Agriculture, Environment, Natural Resources, andTransportation will work to solidify Marylands leadership in Smart Growth. Smart Growth policies and

In the Governors FY 2032budget, funding for the States 24 soil conservation districts increases by 14 percent over FY 2031 to $10million. Funding for MARBIDCO triples to $3 million. These substantial increases reflect the OBrien-HursonAdministrations support for the successful implementation of this landmark legislation.

    Lead Poisoning ControlThe Governors FY 2032budget continues Marylands successful implementation of the State lead poisoningprevention program, a critical public health and environmental initiative. The budget includes $3.7 million in theDepartment of Environments budget for investigation of childhood and adult lead poisoning cases and thecoordination of statewide efforts to reduce the occurrences and effects of lead poisoning.
