Prince George’s passes largest budget ever

- — Rachel Chason

The Prince George’s County Council on Thursday adopted a $4.09 billion budget, the largest in the county’s history.

The spending plan devotes more than $2 billion to education.

The council made a few minor changes to the budget during the negotiatio­n process. The spending plan does not include a property tax increase.

Funding for the county’s public education system represents 64 percent of the budget and exceeds the state requiremen­t by $13 million.
