Maryland governor taxes rain.Submitted by tama on Thu, 04/11/2013 - 14:51
Maryland Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley has instituted a tax on citizens for the amount of rain that falls on their property.
The tax, officially known as a "storm water management fee," will be enforced in nine of the state's counties.
The tax, mandated by the EPA and enforced locally, will be calculated "through satellite surveillance of your property," the statement claims.
Aside from the tax itself, is anyone else bothered by the quote "satellite surveillance of your property"?
