Three Calvert Republican Teens Attend Leadership School

This past weekend, Calvert County Young Republican Miranda Jones (Left - College of Southern Maryland), along with Calvert County Teenage Republicans Logan Toney (Center - Sr. Calvert High School) and Renee Ermer (Right - Sr. Calvert High School) attended Youth Leaderhip School at the Leadership Institute in Arlington, VA.

During their training, they learned how to build an effective student organization, get out the vote, get earned media (favorable publicity), to develop a public relations strategy, and launch a successful career in politics. We look forward to them bringing this skills back to Calvert County and helping the party.

Tax Update from MD House Republicans

We've worked hard to hold the line on Governor Hogan's budget priorities. The Senate voted unanimously for the budget, and the House will vote on the conference committee version of the budget next week. We are working with Governor Hogan to provide tax relief this year, a premise not seen in Annapolis for many years.

While the Democratic Leadership in the House continues to stall any tax relief measures, here is a list of new and/or increased taxes proposed this year that we have fought and thankfully will NOT pass:

Chicken Tax - $15 million annual tax on poultry farmers (HB 886)
Death Tax – eliminating the death tax repeal we passed last year (HB 730)
Bottle Tax - 5 cent tax on every bottle - can be redeemed if you return bottle (HB 982)
Bag tax - bans plastic bags and put a 10 cent tax on paper bags (HB 551)
Tobacco Tax - a $90 million annual tax increase on tobacco products (HB 108)
Tax on Utility Bills to benefit solar & wind - ramps up to $566 million annual tax

Environmental Update
PMT (Phosphorus Management Tool) in Regulations

Cleaning up the Bay is important to all Marylanders. The PMT is a regulation imposed on farmers across our state to regulate phosphorus. Former Governor Martin O'Malley issued phosphorus management regulations in the last days of his term. It certainly appeared to be a parting shot to farmers as he had talked about this issue for at least four years and failed to act until he packed his office and was moving out. Implementation of these regulations would have severely crippled both the poultry industry on the Eastern Shore and the agricultural industry across our state.

The Hogan administration worked closely with the agricultural and environmental communities to design a balanced plan for limiting phosphorus run-off from Maryland farms. This solution, a plan that is agreeable to all parties and relies on the best-available science, represents an important step forward in environmental policy.

Those involved in achieving this compromise included the Chesapeake Bay Commission, the Maryland Department of Agriculture, Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Delmarva Poultry Industry, Maryland Farm Bureau, and a coalition of environmental groups known as the Maryland Clean Agriculture Coalition.

Under the Hogan regulations, farmers will have to implement the new phosphorus management tool by 2024. The PMT regulates how much phosphorus can be applied, based on how much of the nutrient is already in the soil, and how likely it is to reach waterways.

Restoration of the bay is key to the future of our state, and it is the responsibility of every Marylander - not just the agricultural community. I am proud of Governor Hogan's work to bring everyone together to find solutions that everyone can agree upon.

Frank McCabe



Francis Patrick (Frank) McCabe, 77, of Solomons, MD died peacefully on June 2, 2015, due to complications from cancer. He was born December 7, 1937 in Milwaukee, WI and was raised on the family farm in rural Whitewater by his parents, Thomas Francis McCabe and Gertrude Ann Malone McCabe. He graduated from Whitewater High School in 1955 and from Parks College of St. Louis University in 1958 with a degree in Aeronautical Administration. He had a career in the federal government, both in St. Louis and in Washington, DC spanning 41 years, retiring in 1999. The last 27 years were spent in the Office of International Affairs at the Federal Aviation Administration, where he worked directly with foreign countries, particularly Russia and China, on a wide range of international aviation issues.

His two passions, especially in retirement, were active involvement in local Republican politics for the betterment of his county, state and nation; and sailing his boat, the Kelly Ann, in the Chesapeake Bay and down the Intracoastal Waterway to Florida with first mate Nancy. He was a devout Catholic and an active parishioner at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Solomons, and was involved in many civic, charitable and cultural causes. He is survived by his devoted wife of 47 years, Nancy Read McCabe; a son, Thomas Patrick McCabe (Meghan Conklin) of Washington, DC; a daughter, Kelly Ann McCabe (William Plyler) of Los Angeles, CA; a sister, Rita McCabe Jackson Weiss of Mequon, WI; and two grandsons.

We miss you Frank! Rest in peace!
