Maryland isn’t going to be left out of the tax cut basket if Governor Larry Hogan has his way.  He is planning to advocate for moderate tax cuts from the $300 million surplus the state is expected to realize in the current fiscal year.  Hogan, who was elected in 2014 on a tax-cutting and smaller government platform, has pushed unsuccessfully in the past for more authority over state spending.  The Maryland legislative session is only 90 days, so the republican Governor has only a short window to win over the democratic-controlled legislature.
