Fund Money To Offset The Budget Deficit?

November 06, 1991

* Tom Wright, 45, of Ellicott City, works in sales and marketing in Howard County:

Taking money out of one budget to put it in anotheris not a good idea. It just shifts the shortage around. The (county government) has to solve the problem long term and not just look for short-term solutions. If the money is really not needed, then it's a good idea. But if it will create hardships, then they should look elsewhere. Food and the agriculture industry are basics. . . . We shouldinstead reform the basic tax structure of the country.
