Maryland House Votes to Raise Gas Tax

Measure now goes to the state Senate

Maryland's House of Delegates voted Friday to raise gas taxes, a measure that would add about 12 cents per gallon to gas prices by 2015.

The bill now goes to the state Senate.

The gas-tax bill would generate hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for Maryland transportation projects by implementing a new sales tax on gas. The higher taxes would be phased in over several years.
