TAKOMA PARK – The city’s 20th District delegates brought news of a state budget deficit to the City Council Tuesday in what Del. David Moon (D) approximated as a “billion dollar budget hole.”

Moon stated there will be cuts and limited funds will be prioritized but he did not elaborate on what would be cut.

However, Del. Sheila Hixson (D) stayed optimistic.

“I think that us asking for money, we don’t have to apologize for that, we don’t” said Hixson. “I mean when we go into these meetings, they say ‘You guys got it all’ and I say ‘Even if we do, it’s wearing out, so you’re going to have to help us.'”
