Governor Martin O’Malley’s gas tax proposal makes it harder for the state to use transportation dollars to supplement other needs. A bill to apply the state’s sales tax to the price of gasoline is set to go before the General Assembly.
Gov. Martin O’Malley’s proposal to phase in a 6 percent sales tax on gasoline includes money for local road repairs, rules to make it harder to shift transportation dollars to other purposes and a mechanism to delay implementing the tax if gas prices spike.
Gov. Martin O’Malley fired back Wednesday at Comptroller Peter Franchot for criticism of O’Malley’s gas tax proposal, describing him as “kind of our version of Mitt Romney.”
Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot says a gasoline sales tax proposed by Gov. Martin O’Malley would be detrimental to families and businesses.
The prospect of a gas tax hike this year stirs Marylanders to action. Demonstrations on both sides have already started.
Controversial remarks by the governor on a radio show have some business owners on edge, worried they could see the sales tax go up once again.
With the price of gas as high as it is, the idea of adding more in gas taxes doesn’t sit well with many drivers.
Marylanders could soon experience even more pain at the pump.
With the start of the General Assembly just days away, lawmakers are preparing to tackle some controversial topics, including a proposed hike in the gasoline tax.
The price at the pump will be getting even higher if Governor Martin O’Malley has his way. He wants to raise the gas tax.
Maryland lawmakers will soon be gearing up for another legislative session, and the state’s governor says those lawmakers will need courage to consider possible tax increases.
Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker says he’ll be looking at “almost everything” as an option to raise new revenue and deal with a possible budget shortfall.
