****A SECOND LEGISLATIVE HEARING****
MILITARY RETIREMENT TAX 

ON MARCH 4TH AT 4:00 PM
 NOTE:  time changed at last minute from 1 to 4 pm

Gail Murdoch, the Maryland Department Legislative Affairs Chairman has put out a call for you to turn out for a second hearing to be held March 4th.  Quoting from her message:

"THE HEARING ON SB 592 THE GOVERNORS RETIREMENT BILL WILL BE HEARD ON WED THE 4TH OF MARCH IN THE SENATE BUDGET AND TAXATION HEARING ROOM AT 1PM.  WE NEED ANOTHER BIG TURN OUT FOR THIS LIKE WE HAD TODAY.

 

I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT AND SUPPORT THE TESTIMONY TODAY [2/27/15] ON THE GOVERNORS HOUSE BILL".


Maximum participation is requested.  We need to show our support for this important legislation.  To recap:


Governor Hogan has kept his promise that he made at the convention in July.  He has introduced Senate Bill 592 and House Bill 482 entitled Income Tax – Subtraction Modification – Military Retirement Income.  These bills would give a 25% or $5,000 whichever is greater the first year and it would increase by 25% each year until it reaches 100%.  This is what we have been fighting for a long time.  Now the ball is in our court to do our part to make sure these bills get passed by committee and moved to the respective floors.  In order to accomplish this mission, I am asking that everyone contact their Senators and Delegates and urge them to support these bills.
