ANNAPOLIS -- The University System of Maryland at Hagerstown's funding has been threatened again by the Maryland General Assembly. But Del. John P. Donoghue, D-Washington, says everyone just "needs to calm down" because the recommendation by a budget analyst with the Department of Legislative Services is likely to fail. Donoghue said he believes the recommendation, which will be offered today in the House Appropriations Committee, calls for reducing USM-H funding for the coming budget year to $175,000.

ANNAPOLIS -- A $500,000 cut in funding from the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown's $2 million budget was approved Friday by the House Appropriations Committee. The proposal, which will move to the full House for a vote Wednesday, also calls for reducing the downtown Hagerstown center's funding over the next four years to a level more consistent with non-USM centers. Those cuts would decrease USM-H funding to $172,000. A proposal earlier this month to reduce the center's funding to $172,000 was rejected.

Byrd, D-W.Va., said he added $750,000 for the Outdoor Education Center program to the Fiscal Year 2005 Commerce, Justice and State Appropriations bill, which was wrapped into a larger federal funding package. The legislation was approved by Congress recently and signed into law last week. The partnership between For Love of Children, a national youth and family services agency, and Xpeditions, a West Virginia nonprofit corporation, will establish a broad-based program to build the self-esteem and life skills of low-income and underserved youth, Byrd said in the release.

Leaders of Progressive Maryland, a grass-roots political organization, are traveling through the state over the next few weeks asking U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett and members of Congress to increase funding for federal education bills. Representatives of the group made a stop Wednesday in Hagerstown.
