THE RECENT fiscal update on the state of Maryland's budget leaves little doubt that the public will feel the next round of cuts. We need to reduce the budget by another $240 million. So it is safe to assume that whatever "fat" was left in 1992 will not survive fiscal year 1993. And the ultimate indignity: State employees, who have taken the brunt of the budget crisis, may now be charged to park.Last year, the budget committees of the Senate and House of Delegates undertook a detailed review of all agency budgets and imposed cuts on a line-item basis.

ANNAPOLIS -- Budget advisers to Gov. William Donald Schaefer have warned him that the budget for fiscal 1993, which he will have to submit to the General Assembly 10 months from now, already faces a potential shortfall of $365 million.The "best guess" prediction, outlined in a Feb. 21 internal memorandum obtained by The Sun, describes the projected shortfall as "well outside the 'manageable level.' ""This preliminary analysis suggests that the fiscal year 1993 budget cannot be balanced by traditional means," wrote the memorandum's author, Dennis H. Parkinson, deputy secretary for budget and fiscal planning.

One of state government's top financial experts has estimated that the budget deficit at the end of this fiscal year will be at least $69 million higher than that forecast by the Schaefer administration.The administration has estimated the deficit at $180 million.William S. Ratchford II, director of the legislature's Department of Fiscal Services, presented his opinion yesterday to a special spending committee in Annapolis.While there may be disagreement on how serious the deficit picture is, experts appear to agree that the dark clouds covering much of the nation's economy are drifting across Maryland.
