STOP HB 127 - The Paint Tax
HB 127 in a tax that will be put on every can of paint. It’s unsure how much this will cost you. Estimates are up to $1.99 per can. The paint tax will pay for a paint recycling program. By the way, MANY counties already have a paint recycling program in place.
In the end, this new paint tax is going to pay for a program you may already pay for in your county taxes. It’s no wonder the counties like the program. It will save them money.
I am opposed to this bill. I support recycling paint. I support reusing and recycling as much as we possibly can. I am a conservative – which means I like to conserve the environment and also money. This convoluted program is wrong for Maryland.
What will they tax next?
