Default Text of the bill can be found here:

http://mlis.state.md.us/2012rs/bills/hb/hb1307f.pdf

Raises the cost of a dealer's license application from $25 to $100.

Doesn't sound like much, but help me out math whizzes....wouldn't that be a 300% increase?

Reduces the validity of a temporary boat number from 90 days to 60 days.

I've never bought a new bought before....is this a big deal? At face value it doesn't seem to be.

But HOLY CRAP the 2 year registration fees are going through the roof!!!

And if you want a replacement copy of your title? Not $2 anymore (which I agree is on the cheap side...even though it took the clerk less than 40 seconds to process my request and take my money when I was there earlier this year.) 40 seconds of time, plus postage, an envelope and one piece of paper printed should NOT COST $25 as proposed.

I understand the cost of operations, but for the state to blatantly bust our backs to MAKE MONEY on these mandatory services (if you own a boat) is outrageous to me.

No surpise here, but Delegate Dwyer opposes the bill as well.

Awaiting responses from my 3 in D-30, but Mike Busch rarely sees a tax or fee hike that he doesn't like.
