Legislature should take a cue from hospital rates and hold the line on taxes
I read in The Sun that the state is limiting the hospitals that it regulates to a very slight increase in rates ("Maryland allows hospitals slight increase in rates," May 3). According to the article, under current economic conditions, state regulators chose to keep the hospitals from raising their rates in order to protect the public. The overall combined rate increase was held to .3 percent.
