AFP-Maryland: Gas Tax Hike Solidifies State’s Dreadful Tax Climate
O’Malley signs into law massive 80 percent gas tax hike on families and businesses.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Americans for Prosperity-Maryland, who fought the gas tax hike for the last three years, released the following statement on the signing of the 80 percent gas tax hike.
“Governor O’Malley’s 80 percent gas tax hike solidifies Maryland’s reputation as having a dreadful tax climate which we must shake,” said Americans for Prosperity Maryland’s interim State Director Nick Loffer.  “ It’s shameful that O’Malley’s is only giving his pet industries a break, like the $25 million Hollywood film tax credit, while average families and businesses suffer from his outrageous tax hikes.”
