IN BUSINESS and public life, routine expense accounts usually work this way: Submit a receipt, get reimbursed. The Baltimore City Council shouldn't be exempt from this most basic practice of financial responsibility and accountability. Requiring the 19 council members to submit receipts for council expenses - the way it works for other city employees - is the easiest way to revamp the body's unique and unorthodox system, one that has raised questions about spending practices, tax considerations and legal implications.

An unfamiliar transaction on a credit card statement might not raise too much alarm if it's just a few dollars. But all those dollars add up. Take the case of a recently halted international scheme that bilked more than 1 million customers of more than $10 million since at least 2006, all funneled through dummy corporations, according to the Federal Trade Commission. How did the scam continue unchecked for so long? By making small, unauthorized charges of 20 cents to $10. The money was then laundered through bank accounts in countries such as Bulgaria, Cyprus and Kyrgyzstan, with the help of "money mules" that wired money overseas.

Howard County income tax collections — the second-largest source of county revenue — continue to increase, which will likely help the county avoid a serious budget shortfall this coming year.

" The largest source of revenue, property tax collections, is expected to remain mostly flat until at least 2014, as home values continue to decline.

Councilman Bill Henry, who represents northern Baltimore, came under scrutiny after Fox 45 aired a report that he had submitted thousands of dollars of receipts for meals with constituents since he was elected to the council in 2007. Henry used funds from a $5,000 annual discretionary account to pay for the meals, ranging from $15 to $100 at restaurants such as Cafe Zen and Brewer's Art.

Maryland's General Assembly is poised to reduce the tax rate at one of the state's five approved slots locations, hoping the change will entice bidders to Rocky Gap State Park. The proposal represents the first significant alteration to the state's gambling program and would roll back the expected revenues by about $2 million over five years. Rocky Gap was the only location that failed to draw a qualified bidder. "If you don't get someone to bid on slots at Rocky Gap you don't get anything," said Sen. George C. Edwards, a Western Maryland Republican who proposed the change in the Senate.

Maryland's fiscal year has barely begun, but the state legislature's chief budget analyst is warning of a $700 million shortfall, or about twice the previous estimate. Gov. Martin O'Malley soon will present to the Board of Public Works a series of spending reductions to the budget for the year that began July 1, though it is unclear how deeply he will cut. Several states with balanced budgets earlier this year now face shortfalls because of declines in tax receipts, according to Stateline.
