Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. released a $21 million supplemental budget proposal yesterday, funding programs such as private school textbook purchases, childhood lead screening and biomedical research. Many of the other items in the proposal are minor changes and corrections to the governor's initial budget bill. But the proposal, which would require approval by the General Assembly, takes advantage of higher state revenue estimates for fiscal 2005 and 2006 and includes some new programs and additions to existing ones.

Gov. Martin O'Malley today released a $222 million supplemental budget that creates a "Gun Center," strives to save a baseball program and sets aside another $10 million in case federal sequestration cuts take a toll on Maryland. The governor designated $300,000 for the Towson University baseball program , scheduled to be eliminated of funding problems, to survive another year while the school works on fundraising. Even though the governor already added $153 million to the state's rainy day fund  with an eye toward what he called the "hara-kiri Congress," O'Malley added extra money.

Anne Arundel County schools Superintendent Eric J. Smith has trimmed $244,000 from a supplemental budget request aimed at starting a math intervention program and expanding the International Baccalaureate program at the middle and high school levels. Smith will present the change at today's school board meeting, where members will consider the operating and capital budgets for the next school year. By eliminating two staff positions for each program as well as $47,000 for classroom supplies for teachers, the request would drop from $2.2 million to $1.99 million.

Washington -- Republican senators told President Bush yesterday that his administration's lack of credibility in the fight against illegal immigration was a major hindrance to passing overhaul legislation, and they urged him to ask for emergency funds to ramp up enforcement. The criticism came as Bush made his first appearance in nearly six years at the GOP senators' weekly strategy luncheon in the Capitol. Senators said the president was receptive to the idea of a supplemental budget request - the same mechanism used to pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is proposing to spend an additional $28.5 million on optical-scan voting machines for this year's elections and lesser amounts in new expenditures for local road projects and health care. The new spending is contained in a $59.5 million supplemental budget the governor released late yesterday, just as the legislative session enters its final two weeks and senators and delegates are already working to mold budget legislation. "This supplemental budget provides resources to secure Maryland's election system with optical-scan voting machines and also makes critical investments in health care," Ehrlich said in a statement.

A suspended state program that provides temporary cash assistance to disabled adults could be restored if lawmakers approve a $13 million supplement the governor proposed yesterday for the 2005 budget. Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. earmarked $2.95 million of the supplemental budget to be distributed in small monthly payments through the Transitional Emergency Medical and Housing Assistance Program through July. The program - which gives $185 stipends to single, unemployable, disabled Marylanders who are ineligible for any other cash assistance programs - has been forced to turn away about 1,000 new applicants since January.

ANNAPOLIS -- A majority of the Maryland General Assembly agrees that community colleges in Carroll and across the state deserve a bigger share of money, Senate and House leaders said yesterday.Still to be convinced is Gov. William Donald Schaefer, so that he will allocate up to $13.3 million more for community colleges in his supplemental budget.Trustees from Carroll and other community colleges made one more trip to Annapolis yesterday to discuss the issue with legislators."I think the way in which it makes a difference is you get the issue in front of as many people as possible," said Barbara Charnock, president of the Carroll Community College board of trustees.

Nerves are fraying on the Anne Arundel County Council as three of seven members chafe under a $1 billion budget proposal from County Executive Janet S. Owens that they say omits needed projects in their districts. Word spread quickly yesterday on the council that Owens, a Democrat, had said in an informal news briefing earlier in the day that she does not plan to present a supplemental budget this month. Because the council can add to the regular budget only for schools, a supplemental budget is the only way this year to revive other projects, such as a new library in Crofton or sound barriers on U.S. 50 near Annapolis.

Case of abuse shows need to save kids first Once again we have to read about a mother charged with abuse in the death of her child ("Mother held in boy's death had drawn earlier notice," March 3). And yet again we see how hard some courts and social service agencies worked to keep those children in her care. I think their euphemism is "preserving the family." I have to wonder how many more dead children it will take before the focus shifts to protecting the innocent, vulnerable children rather than keeping them in homes where one or more parents are incapable of providing a safe, loving environment for them.

Baltimore State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy announced yesterday that her office is in a "crisis" that could cause a "critical threat to public safety" because of an anticipated loss of $2.7 million in state and federal funding. Without that money, she said, her office risks losing 21 prosecutors and 31 support staff, including 14 lawyers who prosecute gun crimes. But city and state officials said it's too early in the state's budgetary process to tell whether the state's attorney's office will get the $1.7 million it has requested from the General Assembly to pay prosecutors in the gun unit.

The General Assembly gave grudging final approval yesterday to a $21 billion budget for next year amid complaints that the spending plan is too ambitious for economically uncertain times. In a sign of fiscal unease that has been building for weeks, the Senate approved the conference committee report on the budget by a vote of 33-14, an unusually high number of dissents. The House had given its final approval Monday night after its own round of complaints. "This budget does not face reality," said Del. Robert L. Flanagan, the House Republican whip.

The Anne Arundel County Council will start cutting the proposed county budget today with the aim of finding enough money to give employees, including teachers, some of the pay raises they are demanding. "It's going to be a big day," said Councilwoman Barbara D. Samorajczyk, an Annapolis-area Democrat who supports providing raises if possible. To provide the raises, the council probably will need the cooperation of County Executive Janet S. Owens, who appears unlikely to pay for raises through budget cuts.

WASHINGTON - President Bush plans to formally ask Congress today for $75 billion in additional money to pay for the war in Iraq for the next six months, as well as for the first stages of reconstruction after the war and for enhanced security at home. At a White House meeting yesterday, Bush asked senior lawmakers to quickly pass the measure, which includes $63 billion for military operations in Iraq, without adding any money for their own priorities. The measure also contains $8 billion for international operations, including aid to U.S. partners for war-related costs, and about $3.5 billion for homeland security, a senior administration official said.
