Md. House & Senate Split on the Amount of Tax Hikes Amidst Protest

“Under the House plan, 87 percent of people in this state will pay no more– not a dime more– in income tax than they would if we did nothing,” said Del. Sandy Rosenberg (D-Baltimore).

Unpaid lead paint judgments: Baltimore housing authority chief Graziano said in January deal was near

Based on Graziano’s assurance, Rosenberg says, he held off pursuing a remedy in the legislature when the General Assembly’s annual session began days later. But with the session winding to a close and no deal in sight, the vice chairman of the Ways and Means Committee says he’s been let down.

“I would have considered what options I had as a legislator, through the introduction of a bill, to try and move the issue forward — to have a positive impact,” the Baltimore Democrat said.

Early Childhood Education: Gambling on Pre-K

While some can afford the $300 to $500 monthly fees charged by many excellent private preschool programs, the state’s policy leaves many working- and middle-class families with relatively few options. As a result, only about a third of the state’s approximately 75,000 4-year-olds are presently enrolled in high-quality pre-kindergarten.

Bills proposed by state Sen. Bill Ferguson and Del. Samuel I. “Sandy” Rosenberg, both Democrats, would eliminate the doughnut hole into which working- and middle-class families fall by expanding access to quality pre-K programs to all Maryland families with 4-year-olds.

Maryland’s death penalty comes under fire

Delegate Samuel I. Rosenberg, Baltimore Democrat, said Monday he will introduce a bill to make Maryland the 17th state to outlaw capital punishment. He sponsored similar legislation last year that stalled in a House committee.

While a 2009 state law made it significantly harder for prosecutors to pursue the death penalty, Mr. Rosenberg said the system should be eliminated entirely to prevent any future mistakes.

“It’s a system that can’t be made to work,” he said. “You can tinker with it all you want.”
