Democrats rule out seeking new taxes???

"Democrats rule out seeking new taxes"
By Robert Redding Jr., Times, 1 Feb 2005

Maryland Democratic legislative leaders say they will not seek new taxes during the current General Assembly session despite a report from their fiscal adviser that the state spends more money than it collects. . . .

Meanwhile, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr., Prince George's Democrat, said he also has no plans to "broaden the sales tax or increase the income tax." . . .
Comment: Perhaps Sen. Leo Green (D-23) did not get the message? He is sponsoring a bill (SB5) to add a county sales tax in Prince George's County. See http://dcrussell.esmartweb.com/2005/01/pg-taxers-sen-green-introduces-county.html
