House Republicans To Discuss Opposition To Gas Tax

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland House Republicans are scheduled to talk about why they don't think the state should raise the gas tax.
 
Members of the GOP caucus have set a Tuesday morning news conference in Annapolis.
 
Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley last week expressed confidence that the Democratic-controlled House and Senate will reach a consensus on a new revenue plan for transportation.
 
O'Malley proposed phasing in a 6 percent sales tax on gasoline last year, but the idea stalled amid high gas prices.
 
Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, D-Calvert, has made some proposals. They include allowing county governments to raise up to 5 cents per gallon on gas sales for local transportation projects. He also has proposed a separate 3 percent sales tax on gasoline.
