Report: Md. may raise tax on alcohol

By Washington Post Editors

Del. Bill Bronrott (D-Montgomery) and Sen. Rich Madaleno (D-Montgomery) confirmed Tuesday that they will introduce a bill to raise tax on alcohol, The Baltimore Sun's Annie Linskey writes. They said a 10 cent-per-drink tax would raise an estimated $200 million for the state. The money would pay for programs to treat and prevent substance abuse and fill other funding gaps in health-related services.
