ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland panel has approved about $413 million in state budget cuts as part of a long-term effort to adjust to the impact the coronavirus has had on the state's economy.

The Board of Public Works voted Wednesday for a scaled-back version of more than $600 million in cuts proposed by Gov. Larry Hogan who is one of three board members along with Comptroller Peter Franchot and Treasurer Nancy Kopp. Franchot objected to making about $205 million of the initially proposed cuts at this time. Franchot supported the revised amount.

Kopp opposed the cuts Wednesday and urged the panel to wait for more budget information coming in two weeks.
