Johnson vetoes Pr. Geo's taxi bill
Miranda Spivack reports on the Maryland Politics blog that Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson has issued his second veto in eight years -- this time voting no a bill that won unanimous support from the County Council to expand the number of taxis in Prince George's.
Johnson said in a two-and-half page letter to the council that he liked the general premise of the bill but wasn't happy with the details, which he said could backfire against elderly riders and prospective taxi drivers, many of whom have been waiting for several years to get one of the coveted Prince George's medallions.
