Measuring Maryland's Progress
Revenue and spending dashboards provide basic data about
these revenue and spending trends. The data shows trends related to general
fund revenues (such as the income tax), which support general government
spending. The section includes data that examine dedicated revenues (such as
the gas tax), which support specific government programs. In addition, this
chapter provides data regarding State operating budget (annual expenditures for
State government operations, entitlement programs, and grants) and capital
budget (expenditures for infrastructure) spending. The dashboards also examine
State personnel and pension impacts. The section does not examine specific
programmatic areas, such as education, environment, health, and public safety.
Those topics are discussed in separate chapters.
