The defeat of the Carroll County commissioners' proposed real estate transfer tax won't have staff members frantically reworking the budget, but it could mean projects are delayed or scrapped. Carroll's legislative delegation voted 4-3 against the tax Tuesday in Annapolis, refusing to support it in the General Assembly. The seven-member delegation will support the county's other proposed bills, including a hotel tax and a tax credit for the elderly. The 1 percent levy on home sales could have generated about $7.5 million in revenue next year, which the commissioners said would have been used for school and roads projects.

Carroll County General Hospital has received state approval to start work in May on an $80 million expansion that hospital officials say is needed because of the growing population and growing confidence in the county's only hospital. The plan, which would add 113,000 square feet and renovate 25,000 square feet, calls for the largest expansion in the history of the 40-year-old Westminster institution. Approved last week by the Maryland Health Care Commission, the expansion includes: Doubling the size of the emergency department by building a new 21,250-square-foot department that is to include 20 multipurpose rooms, four cardiac trauma rooms, two triage rooms, four dedicated rooms for behavioral health evaluations and an expanded fast-track area with six private rooms designed to provide faster service to people with minor illnesses and injuries.
