Business Climate
How would you characterize Maryland's business climate? What can the state do to foster the creation of more family-supporting jobs?
Quinn: Seems like Governor Hogan’s plan is to pay businesses to come here than allow those few businesses to operate tax free while the rest of us pick up the tab. My plan would be to end those programs and lower corporate rates for all businesses. I would also end personal property tax.
