Gov. Wes Moore testifies on veterans’ tax cut bill as state lawmakers begin to consider his policy priorities

February 17, 2023

Going to bat for one of his first major legislative priorities, Gov. Wes Moore told a state House committee Thursday that his bill to reduce taxes for retired veterans would help keep working veterans in Maryland when other surrounding states already offer better benefits. “They’re building their lives here in the state of Maryland and we cannot continue to lose them to other states,” said the Democratic governor, testifying in support of one of four of his bills heard by the committee. “As I’ve said before, I refuse to let this state be a farm team for other states.”
