Leave it to Leopold
John Leopold has to be the only Republican mad that the General Assembly passed a tax of his:
Leopold was upset, though, that the General Assembly stole an idea he has pushed as a local revenue source – a higher rental car tax.
“I proposed a car-rental tax on out-of-state residents,” that could have raised $5 million a year for the county, he said, but the Arundel delegation of state legislators rejected the idea.
Instead, the state will now impose a tax on all renters, including Maryland residents, and keep the proceeds to help pay for a new Chesapeake Bay restoration fund.
Aw….let’s throw a pity party for Tax Hike John.
