Hogan Comments On Augustine Report

March 9th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today released the following statement in response to the Senate Finance and House Economic Matters joint hearing on Augustine Commission legislation:

“Making Maryland more competitive is something we have led the discussion on for four years and it is one of the main reasons I was elected governor. Putting the Augustine Commission together was a good move and I am glad Senate President Miller and Speaker Busch decided to join us in this important conversation. The initial report was a strong start and the majority of the legislation being proposed now is common-sense and should be passed. However, no discussion about making Maryland more competitive is complete without also addressing our burdensome tax structure – undoubtedly the main reason our state's economy continues to struggle. I look forward to working with the General Assembly to address the commission’s tax recommendations later this year.”
