From the mountains, to the oceans (and the bay)

Western Maryland lawmakers gathered in Annapolis today to push for a third commemorative license plate. The Mountain Maryland tag would join the current tags supporting the Chesapeake Bay and Maryland farming. This is the bill's third year -- and this year it has a twist: the current legislation dedicates the tag fee to the Chesapeake Bay Trust and a similar organization that promotes agricultural interests.

Today's Cumberland Times-News article puts it in perspective, " dedicating Mountain revenue to the Bay, the plate would promote the educational mission of the Bay Trust, reminding Western Marylanders that we all have a role to play in protecting this vital estuary."
