That's right folks, Del. Carolyn J. B. Howard (D-24) apparently is not satisfied with Gov. O'Malley's tax increases. she has introduced HB 53 to raise the sales tax rate to 7%, a 40% increase. As with Gov. O'Malley's sales tax proposal, this increase will have the greatest negative effect on poor and working people who can least afford it.
