ANNAPOLIS, Maryland — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has released a supplemental budget that includes money for some tax-relief plans he is supporting.

The plan made public Thursday includes $5.2 million to provide tax relief on military pensions and relief for first responders. It also includes $7.4 million for personal property tax relief that would eliminate the tax for businesses that have less than $10,000 in personal property.

The Maryland State Education Association criticized the plan for failing to include about $70 million in public school education funding the Legislature restored from Hogan's initial budget proposal in January. A Hogan spokesman says negotiations will continue.

The governor released the plan as House and Senate negotiators begin work on reconciling differences in the $40 billion state budget as approved by the two chambers so far.
