In Annapolis, talk of deep cuts and higher taxes – Higher Taxes on the Agenda in Annapolis Assembly

Wait ’til next year.,0,6702255.story

That’s the theme of this year’s General Assembly session when it comes to contentious possible solutions to the fiscal mess Maryland – like all other states – finds itself in.

The theme bothers Republicans. They worry that higher taxes might be pushed through Annapolis next year by a Democratic majority fretful about making such moves before November’s elections.

“They are trying to use smoke and mirrors and Band-Aids to get through this year,” said Senate Minority Leader Allan H. Kittleman, a Howard County Republican. “Next year,” he predicted, “they will have to have the highest tax increase in the history of Maryland.”
