Statement On Maryland Senate Override Of HB 732 Veto

Washington, DC – Today, the Maryland Senate joined the Maryland House of Delegates in voting to override Governor Hogan’s veto of HB 732. Internet Association’s Senior Vice President of State Government Affairs Robert Callahan commented:

“It is a shame that the Maryland General Assembly chose political theater over sound public policy with today’s veto override vote of HB 732.  Maryland now has the dubious honor of being the only state in the country to have ever passed such a flawed tax, and the added distinction of doing so in the middle of a pandemic and economic crisis.  At least Maryland businesses and consumers can rest easier knowing that the courts will have the last say on this matter, and that the law, not politics, will decide the outcome.”
