Protesters Rally In Catonsville Against Governors Proposed Gas Tax Hike
CATONSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) Gas tax controversy. The battle against the governor’s proposal to raise it is heating up.
Weijia Jiang has the latest on how taxpayers are fighting back.
After an unsuccessful attempt to nearly double Maryland's gas tax Senator Rob Gargiola is using disingenuous election time rhetoric by saying he "does not support" Governor O'Malley's 6% sales tax on gas tax.
However Gargiola says he'd still support a "scaled back" gas tax proposal.
The truth is even a scaled back gas tax increase, such as Gargiola's proposed 10 cent increase from 2011, still damages the middle class, adds another burden to all businesses that we will pay for, and evaporates too much money from Maryland's economy.
Sen. Rob Garagiola, now running for Congress, says "We have to be sensitive to the economy. We have to be sensitive to people's pocketbooks."
