ANNAPOLIS - As expected, the supplemental budget proposal released Thursday by Gov. Robert Ehrlich included 160 correctional officer positions. None of those positions, however, were slated for the three prisons at the complex south of Hagerstown or the two prisons in Cumberland. "When I looked at that budget today, I was surprised," Sen. Donald F. Munson, R-Washington, said. On Wednesday, Ehrlich announced that $5.5 million had been earmarked for new correctional officers across the state.
