The governor's $39 billion spending plan includes no new taxes or fees and, as required by law, is balanced. It includes a 2 percent raise for state employees that takes effect next Jan. 1. It also includes increased spending on education, the environment and some tax credits. "This budget should be an articulation of who we are and what's important to us," O'Malley said.
