Leggett proposes cuts for all MoCo agencies

By Washington Post editors

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) proposed a $4.3 billion budget Monday morning that cuts total government spending for the first time in more than 40 years.

The budget reflects a drop-off in revenues because of the recession. It calls for cuts across government operations and gives schools $137 million less than required under state rules. County officials also surprised council members by announcing that they would use more than $100 million from the county's rainy day fund to help the county get through the current fiscal year.

Stay with the Post for more details on the county's budget.
