The co-chair of Larry Hogan's gubernatorial transition team on Monday signaled where the incoming administration wants Maryland's taxes to go: down, but not all the way down to the basement.
"Our goal is not to be the low-tax state in the country," said James Brady, who is co-chairing the transition team. "This is not a race to the bottom. This is a race to be competitive."
Maryland needs to be competitive with surrounding states, Brady said. That isn't all about taxes. It's also about factors like the regulatory environment, he said.
