We will bring you up to date on all of these issues and more.

WMDA/CAR Endorses Peter Franchot for Maryland State Comptroller

Make Sure You Vote on November 4th! And Be Sure To Vote For Question 1!

What does Question 1 do?

Question 1 would create a constitutional amendment to prohibit any raiding of Maryland's Transportation Trust Fund. This "lockbox" would ensure that Maryland's Transportation dollars are used only for transportation funding.  Download the attached flyer that gives more information on the gas tax and the proposed amendment (click here to view flyer). The flyer can also be printed and distributed to your customers!
