Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Thursday announced cuts to 155 state fees that are expected to save $60 million in taxpayer funds over the next five years.
Among the targeted fees are a $1.50 reduction in E-ZPass prices, an elimination of the $300 application fee for hospice care and a waived entrance charge to state parks for veterans on Veterans Day. Mr. Hogan said none of the reductions would diminish service at any affected agency.
“We believe this money will do more good in the hands of the taxpayers than in the hands of the government,” the Republican governor said during a press conference in Annapolis.
His announcement marks the second time Mr. Hogan has cut agency fees without the Democrat-run General Assembly, which did not approve some of his tax-relief proposals in the legislative session that ended last month.
