Many Marylanders weren’t too keen on some of the important legislation that came out of Annapolis during this year’s session of the General Assembly. Successful bills dealing with taxes, same-sex marriage and gun control were among those that lots of residents viewed with dismay.

We hope those same folks feel as we do about two new laws that were subjects of recent News-Post stories — the Maryland Agricultural Certainty Program and the Ann Sue Metz Law.

The fact that cbf supports this legislation means nothing to those of us who understand they are nothing but a shill for this gov and his continuim of tax increases while they turn a deaf ear to the the fact that the proposed incinerator will heavily pollute the Potomac and Chesapeake ....when a rep from cbf came to Frederick about two years ago to shill for rainwater runoff and doubling of flush taxes he initially declared he knew nothing about the incinerator and its negative affects...400,000 gallons of toxic water daily into those bodies of water and he "knew nothing" ...sounds familiar doesn't it, he later afdmitted privately he did know about it but the "Foundation" has to pick its fights......and certainly they didn't wish to buck mom who took a hefty contribution from incinerator operator Covanta and then declared burning garbage and tires to be Tier One Green...what a sick joke!

There's no denying that the Ann Sue Metz Law is good legislation, but when I read up on the law I discovered that Maryland was the 47th state to enact this sort of legislation. So there were 46 other states with this law on their books, but the Maryland legislature didn't consider such a law before a murdering opportunistic scoundrel demonstrated the need for it. If the Maryland legislature had been more forward-thinking they could have saved the Metz family a lot of heartbreak, aggrevation - and their estate.
