ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley wants to sell lawmakers on his plan to create a 6 percent sales tax on gasoline.
The governor is expected to testify on the bill Wednesday afternoon before the state Senate Budget and Taxation Committee as well as the House of Delegates Environmental Matters and Ways and Means Committees.
His plan would apply the sales to gasoline in 2 percent increments for three years, generating about $613 million annually. Maryland's 23.5-cents per gallon gas tax has not been raised since 1992.
Legislative leaders have said lawmakers will have little appetite for the proposal as they struggle to reduce an ongoing budget deficit.
