O'Malley tilts at windmills

Marylanders pay some of the highest tax rates in the country. Increased tolls, fees, and fuel taxes will soon make our driving costs higher than most. Now Governor Tax wants to add $24 a year to our utility bills so he can tilt at windmills in the ocean.

We should not be subsidizing alternative energy that is not yet technologically cost effective. Wind energy is 4 times more expensive than natural gas and we've got a surplus of natural gas. Gov.Martin O'Malleyshould be working to decrease our utility bills, not make them higher.

Dan Griffin, Perry Hall
