I see that the new gas tax will bring expanded MARC commuter service from Baltimore and the Washington suburbs, a widening of Route 29 in Howard County and a widening the Baltimore Beltway ("Gas tax, tolls go up Monday," June 29).

What I do not see is what is going to be done in Harford, Cecil, Garrett, Washington, Somerset or Saint Mary's counties, to name just a few.

It seems Gov. Martin O'Malley has sucked up to his Democratic constituents around Baltimore and Annapolis and let the devil take the rest of the state. His attitude seems to be let them pay the tax increases, and we will reap the benefits.
