Gov. Larry Hogan made good on a campaign promise Tuesday to try to repeal the so-called rain tax.
The Republican governor's legislation would take away the state requirement that 10 jurisdictions impose a fee to pay for programs that curb storm water pollution.
Hogan's bill, which has 61 co-sponsors, to repeal the rain tax, is now in the hands of the General Assembly.
"Forcing counties to raise taxes against their will was a mistake and needs to be corrected," Hogan said.
