Ballard Spahr partner David L. Winstead was interviewed on NewsChannel8’s NewsTalk with Bruce DePuyt about Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley’s proposal to raise the state’s gasoline tax in order to raise funds for highway and bridge repair and construction projects. Mr. Winstead, a former Secretary of Transportation for the state of Maryland, explained that the rationale for the tax is to maintain the Transportation Trust Fund to keep pace with population growth and increasing congestion.
