We Giveth, They (Want To) Taketh Away

I have to admit, I got mad when I saw this article on Montgomery County (Maryland) Executive Ike Leggett (D) and his efforts to grow the county's upcoming energy tax even more.

You see, many of us here at Electric Advisors are residents of Montgomery County. We're pretty proud of our efforts to spread the word about utility choice in Maryland (as well as DC), and we'd like to see as many people as possible benefit from the lower rates we bring to them.

But now, along comes Mr. Leggett and more taxes. From the article:

Leggett's proposed budget, released March 15, (already) called for a $50 million increase in the county's energy tax starting in July. But after meeting with bond rating agencies, which had concerns about the county's finances, Leggett is looking to boost the tax immediately and at a higher rate to bring in a total of $95 million.

The new plan would raise the average county household's bills by $5 a month, 72 percent more than his original proposal. The first plan would raise taxes by $2.90 a month.

Coupled with an 8.5 percent increase on water rates approved by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, Montgomery County's residents could see their utility bills climb an average $115 starting in July.
