CATONSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s candidates for governor have outlined some of their plans to improve education and the state’s business climate.

Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and Republican Larry Hogan took questions Tuesday night from residents of the Charlestown retirement community in Baltimore County.

Brown says he wants to increase school construction funding from an average of about $340 million a year to $500 million a year. Hogan says providing enough school construction funding isn’t the only problem, and he says he’d push more to develop charter schools in the state.

Brown says he wants to invest in infrastructure to create jobs. He says his opponent is advocating a flawed policy of trying to cut the state to prosperity. Hogan says the state has raised too many taxes, making Maryland inhospitable to businesses.
