Some Say New Tax Less Painful Than Dime-A-Drink Tax
ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A Senate committee has heard a bill that would phase in a special new tax on beer, wine and liquor over a three-year period.
The alcohol tax proposal is considered a compromise to the dime-a-drink proposal. Supporters said because it would be phased in, they think that it will be a less painful approach.
Until now, efforts to increase Maryland’s alcohol tax to pay for health care programs have focused on raising the excise tax at the wholesale level. But advocates of the dime-a-drink campaign said they view the compromise as a victory even though the revenue generated will not directly go to specific health care programs.
