Economic Growth and the Maryland Tax Code

The Maryland Public Policy Institute

Invites you to a policy forum:

The recent surge in government spending is the primary obstacle blocking Maryland's ability to improve its overall economic competitiveness. This growth trend is a troubling sign if it is not reversed through sound fiscal reform. Implementing successful tax reform depends upon reining in the recent acceleration in the growth of government in Maryland.

Bringing Maryland's spending commitments, on a per capita basis, in line with just the average state per capita expenditures provides significant savings to the state. Implementing an expenditure cap on this level can help solidify these gains, providing a fertile environment to improve Maryland's economic landscape.
