    Maryland is considering a new tax on alcohol.

    If it's passed in the upcoming legislative session, the $90 million raised by the 5-cent tax proposed by Delegate Bill Bronrott would be used to pay for drug and alcohol treatment and services for people with developmental disabilities.

    The last time Maryland raised taxes on beer and wine was 1972.
