ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland lawmakers are planning to set aside $800 million to pay costs in future years for the state’s sweeping education reform law known as the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future.

The budget bill now before the Senate also sets aside $350 million for tax relief.

That provision remains to be decided before the General Assembly’s scheduled adjournment April 11.
