Gov. William Donald Schaefer yesterday proposed three new tax checkoffs that would be added to state income forms to allow Marylanders to give money to the state for the Children's Trust Fund, the Maryland Arts Council and the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board. This would be in addition to the existing checkoff that benefits endangered species and the Chesapeake Bay Trust.
The Evening Sun would like to hear whether you would donate money this way.
To register your opinion, call SUNDIAL at 783-1800 (or 268-7736 in Anne Arundel County) today through midnight Sunday. After you hear the greeting, you'll be asked to punch in a four-digit code on your Touch-Tone phone. Punch 4600 and you'll be connected with "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's phone survey on topical issues.
"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
Look for the results in Monday's Evening Sun.
