Tea Party and conservative groups held a rally in Annapolis Tuesday to protest a proposed redistricting plan and possible tax hikes.
Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown said that a gas tax increase could help Maryland fund needed infrastructure projects and create jobs. His testimony before a joint hearing of the Maryland House and Senate came one day after Gov. Martin O’Malley said he would consider an increase to the state’s gasoline tax by 15 cents a gallon as part of a jobs plan.
