ANNAPOLIS, Maryland—Maryland State Senator Paul Pinsky says the business community claims to want a workforce that’s better educated, better trained and prepared so he’s sponsoring a bill to help make that possible. Pinsky’s legislation calls for several new initiatives aimed at reducing the cost of attending community college in Maryland. To pay for it the lawmaker is proposing a 19 percent income tax on income from investment management services throughout the state.
