Change Maryland Action Fund released a new ad today calling on Maryland’s legislature to finally pass Governor Hogan’s proposal to eliminate every single penny of retirement taxes. Over the last seven years, Governor Hogan has proposed similar legislation to reduce or eliminate retirement taxes, and the legislature has failed to act every year. Though Governor Hogan has been successful in delivering targeted retirement tax relief for military veterans, law enforcement, fire and rescue personnel, and corrections and emergency personnel, retirees continue to flee Maryland at an alarming rate every year due to the state’s sky-high retirement taxes.
With the Maryland legislature failing to take any action on crime, and with more than half of the annual legislative session already over, Change Maryland Action Fund (CMAF) and Change Maryland (CM) announced a six-figure ad buy advancing common sense crime proposals to hold violent criminals accountable. The Change Maryland Action Fund radio ads will run in the Baltimore Metro market, asking Marylanders to contact their legislators and urge them to finally pass Governor Hogan’s crime bills.
Change Maryland Action Fund released a new ad today urging Maryland’s legislature to finally pass Governor Hogan’s proposals to increase sentences for violent offenders who use guns and to require greater judicial transparency on sentences for violent crimes. While the legislature has failed to act on passing these common sense crime bills year after year, Baltimore saw 319 killings last year and the deadliest January in more than 50 years last month.
