Aug 22, 2012 — On Tuesday, August 14 the House approved SB2 with amendments that the Senate refused to pass. It was an extremely disappointing day for Maryland as we'll now have to wait until regular session begins in January in order to pass any new legislation.

Oh, but gambling did make it through, which only proves that our representatives just care about the bottom line. This is why we need to focus on the economic loses from the Court's decision. $144 million is the projected loss of housing revenue for Maryland owners, which translates into a $30 million loss in state and local tax revenue for Maryland. We can't afford to ban pit bulls.
