Maryland Panel To Probe Unused Funds

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Members of the state Senate Finance Committee will receive a briefing Wednesday from health department officials on how the Developmental Disabilities Administration failed to spend $34.5 million in state and federal funding at the same time the department has a long waiting list for its services.
The committee wants to know from Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Secretary Joshua Sharfstein how an accounting irregularity occurred and what department officials are doing to fix the problem, said Sen. Thomas M. Middleton (D-Dist 28) of Waldorf, the committee’s chairman.
