Stop the Maryland pet food tax

There is a proposal to create a new $1 million tax on pet food in Maryland. This would be on top of the $20 million Maryland pet owners paid in the sales tax on pet food last year.  The goal is to fund a state spay/neuter program. We support the program and think there are fairer ways to raise money than a new tax on responsible pet owners.  Funding should be through voluntary sources such as public donations and income tax check-offs.
