ANNAPOLIS -- State government begins its new fiscal year today, and it already is facing a potential deficit of nearly a quarter-billion dollars.For anyone who thought the tax increases approved by the General Assembly just two months ago or the long-awaited recovery from the national recession would somehow combine to put an end to Maryland's nagging financial problems, think again.From all appearances, another lean budget year is in store for Maryland.William S. Ratchford II, the legislature's chief budget adviser, told a Senate committee yesterday that he expects the state to close its books on fiscal 1992, which officially ended yesterday, at least $70 million in the red.On top of that, in a forecast one of his aides described as "very preliminary," the Department of Fiscal Services predicted that revenues in fiscal 1993 would fall short of budgeted expenditures by an additional $170 million.
