State Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller predicted Thursday that the General Assembly would approve an increase in Maryland’s gas tax, putting his considerable influence behind an issue that is likely to be divisive in the coming legislative session.
“There’s going to be a gas tax,” Miller said flatly in an address to Maryland business leaders meeting here. “Is it popular? No, [but] it is going to have to get done now.”
