dc.description.abstract Evidence suggests that a number of factors have contributed to Baltimore’s fiscal resiliency. These include the primary role that counties play in the structure of local government in Maryland, the state assumption of the financing and operation of key functions and the equalizing impact of state aid. Local institutions also play a major role—in particular, the responsibility and authority granted to the Board of Estimate by the city charter. Lastly, the confluence of professionalism in budgeting and financial administration combined with a political culture where the advice and guidance of those professionals is heeded by elected officials contributes to Baltimore’s fiscal resiliency.
