Ad War Erupts Over Pollution Control Fees

An advertising and public relations battle has erupted over stormwater pollution control fees in Maryland. 

Radio ads by the Clean Water Healthy Families Coalition urges Maryland lawmakers not to overturn the state's 2012 law that requires pollution control fees. On the other side, a You Tube video argues the "rain tax" is driving people out of the state.
