HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. (AP) — The Occupy Wall Street protesters on a two-week, 240-mile march from New York to Washington have made their way into Maryland.

Organizer Kelley Brannon says the marchers started crossed the Delaware-Maryland border Thursday. They intend to spend the night in Havre de Grace and follow U.S. Route 40 all the way to Baltimore.

The group of a few dozen people hopes to reach Washington by Nov. 23 — the deadline for a congressional committee to decide whether to keep President Barack Obama’s extension of Bush-era tax cuts. Protesters say the cuts benefit only rich Americans.
