Maryland Floats Tripling State's Flush Tax

NBC:

A state task force is considering doubling, and maybe even tripling, the state's flush fee.

The fee for the Bay Restoration Fund is now $30 a year for property owners. The task force is considering recommending a doubling of the fee in 2013, and increasing it to $90 in 2015.

The fund pays for sewage treatment plant and septic system upgrades as well as cover crops that keep pollutants from running off farms into waterways.

The Capital of Annapolis reported Wednesday that the task force also is considering changing how the fund is used, including a proposal to use cover crop funds on programs to reduce storm water runoff. The task force, which met Tuesday in Annapolis, is scheduled to meet twice more before year's end.

" Friends and neighbors complain that taxes are indeed very heavy, and if those laid on by the government were the only ones we had to pay, we might the more easily discharge them; but we have many others, and much more grievous to some of us. We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly. "

-- Benjamin Franklin
