PG Taxers: House vote on final passage of SB 848

Senate Bill 848, dishonestly titled as "Maintenance of Effort," overrides property tax limits established by the voters of several counties and allows county elected officials to ignore the provisions of their own county charters.

In the house, most Prince George's County delegates voted FOR this dishonestly titled, ant-democratic tax bill.  All eight of our senators also voted for the bill

Two of our delegates voted against the bill and deserve our thanks.
One delegate was ill and did not vote:
The remaining delegates all vote Yea. In my opinion, whatever spin or rationalizations they may invent, they deserve our contempt and future opposition.
