Gov. John Carney's address Thursday to a joint session of the General Assembly started with an unexpected moment. When new State Senator Stephanie Hansen introduced Carney to the General Assembly, she inadvertently called him "John C. Markell."   Carney took it in stride and when he got to the podium to start his speech jokingly called Lt. Gov. Bethany Hall-Long "Lt. Gov. Matt Denn," recalling Denn's time as Markell's Lt. Governor.

Carney says “shared sacrifice” was one of his primary guiding principles, making the drafting of the plan “an exercise in making very tough decisions.”

Political reporter James Dawson covered the budget roll-out and the initial reaction and joins us to sort out the winners and losers, as well as what’s next .


Gov. John Carney unveils his 2018 budget proposal Thursday afternoon, offering his blueprint for bridging a shortfall that grew to $386 million based on Monday's latest state revenue estimate.
