The Maryland Senate voted Wednesday to give preliminary approval to a bill that would provide tax credits to many immigrant workers, including those who are undocumented. The credits over the next three years would be identical to what is given to residents eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit. The bill, part of an agreement between the House and Senate leaders last week, came after a similar provision threatened to derail efforts to pass a $1.2 billion stimulus bill to help individuals and businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
