Statement From Governor Larry Hogan On Senate Passage Of Rain Tax Repeal

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today issued the following statement in response to the Maryland Senate passing SB 863, a bill that repeals the Rain Tax mandate:

"The unanimous, 46-0 vote to repeal the Rain Tax mandate is a tremendous victory for the taxpayers of Maryland. As I have said over and over, forcing counties to raise taxes on their citizens – against their will – is wrong and it has to end. I want to thank Senate President Miller and the leaders of the Senate for their hard work and congratulate them for their recognition that the Rain Tax is opposed by the vast majority of Marylanders and that it needs to be repealed. I look forward to working with Speaker Busch and the House leaders over the next few weeks to ensure their support as well."

This was the Senate vote. The repeal still has to be voted on in the House, so at this point in time, the rain tax is still law.

I dont understand how it gets passed and then gets repealed unanimously.

I am proud to say I volunteered on Gov. Hogans election campaign. This is the kind of leadership Maryland and this country has lacked for a long time!

you all are idiots, plain and simple...

It says, and I quote "passing SB 863, a bill that repeals the Rain Tax mandate" Do any of you clowns even know exactly what this means?

This means, that there is still a rain tax, just not a mandate which forces you to pay, now it will still be a tax and still called the rain tax but now it is voluntary, which our mayor says he will make you pay into... Since the eastern shore was exempt from the rain tax from the get go, the mayor still wants to implement this and, best believe you will still have to it here in SBY...

It is like when you all cheer for $8 for the bay bridge toll vs it being $10 as was proposed... You feel like you did something good by fighting the govt and getting them to back down on 2 fucking dollars, but in reality, the govt got what they wanted, a toll increase from $2.50 to $8

der-der which way did he go george, which way did he go, heee-yuck

2:25PM- I agree, I can't wait either. When we get word, it would be nice, for those folks who would like to see him but can't drive, if we could rally everyone and maybe get a couple of buses or car pools together. So that anyone who wants to see him can have a chance.

Thank you Governor Hogan, thank you, thank you, and GOD BLESS YOU for helping us on the shore. Can you please talk some sense into our city mayor about this issue, PLEASE??? We, the taxpayers need your intervention in this matter.

To offset the loss of revenue there is going to be a new tax on breathing. Those with larger lungs will pay more, and smaller people will pay less.
Girls with very large lungs will be exempt from the tax under the beautification of Maryland law.
