In an article published Sept. 23, 2004, about possible deep cuts in Maryland health care spending, The Sun incorrectly reported that Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. had said the only way to close a projected $800 million budget deficit without raising taxes was to eliminate programs. The article should have said Ehrlich intended to use spending cuts and slower program growth to help cut the deficit.

A photo caption in yesterday's Maryland section listed the wrong amount of money raised in a citywide effort for victims of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated South Asia in December. The correct amount is $35,350.

The Sun regrets the errors.
