With the clock running down on the 2012 Session of the Maryland General Assembly, House Republicans today called on their colleagues to reject tax hikes and other expensive measures that the citizens of Maryland cannot afford.
“As we move into the last hours of session many issues are unresolved, particularly in the area of tax increases”, said House Minority Whip Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio. “With the budget bill and related tax legislation in conference committee the General Assembly still has a chance to make changes. There is still an opportunity to protect the citizens of Maryland from massive tax hikes.”
Taxes are not the only unresolved issue as the General Assembly heads into its final weekend. The Governor’s costly off-shore wind bill has not made it through the Senate.
“We are in those last few days of session where chaos reigns supreme”, said House Minority Leader Anthony J. O’Donnell. “As a body the General Assembly needs take a step back and look at the damage we could do by passing these costly measures. There is still time to say no.”
