Independent voices from the TWT Communities
Last year, the Maryland General Assembly passed laws on gambling, gay marriage and in-state tuition for illegal immigrants. Up next: cable companies, cart thieves and crab sandwiches.
Local leaders in Maryland say a proposed state mandate on local education funding goes too far in dictating the fiscal decisions made by county governments.
Sen. Nancy J. King, one of the sponsors for the wheeled cart bill, said she lives in a community that has several grocery stores that have to deal with missing carts.
"People go and shop, then push the carts home. They leave them out in the community rather than return them to the store," said Ms. King, Montgomery Democrat.
