Vote on tax hike was close in House

The vote on a bill that will raise the income tax rate on Maryland’s wealthiest residents was tight in the House of Delegates.

Republicans voted against the bill because they did not support taking more money from residents who tend to be small business owners. Some Democrats, including a large contingent from Montgomery County, voted against the bill because they said it did not raise enough money for the state.

Here’s the vote list, printed off minutes after the bill passed by a 77-60 margin.
