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them for their recognition that the Rain Tax is opposed by the vast majority of Marylanders and that it needs to be repealed.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."
