MD Excise Taxes

What I found most noteworthy in this opinion piece from the Washington Post is that they estimate the liquor lobby to have given $1.3 million from 200-2007, far more than the ~$550,000 I pulled from some of the state giving records. In any event, this is a staggering sum when one considers that $250 or $500 contributions are significant to many delegates and senators. That amount of money certainly keeps the whistle wet.
