May turning into a green month, too?

Just take a peek outside your window and you’ll see that the right combination of warmth, rainfall and sunshine has transformed the outdoors into a verdant paradise.

No? Well then you might feel better knowing your tax dollars are already being put to work for noble causes here in Maryland. Gov. Larry Hogan (R) signed a new law, pithily coined the PRIME Act, which extends $3 billion in tax credits and exemptions to Amazon if they choose to locate their new headquarters in Montgomery County.

Partnership will expand high-speed internet in Garrett County

OAKLAND — A public-private partnership with Microsoft Corp. and Declaration Networks Group Inc. will expand rural broadband access in Garrett County.

The three-year agreement announced Tuesday will expand broadband internet access to approximately 65,000 people in Garrett County and two counties in the Eastern Shore of Virginia as part of Microsoft’s Rural Airband Initiative. The expansion to unserved homes and businesses will use a combination of fixed wireless and television white space deployments.

“Reliable access to high-speed internet is critical for Maryland’s small businesses, families and students to thrive in our 21st century economy,” Gov. Larry Hogan said. “We are working diligently to eliminate the rural broadband gap and ensure that all Marylanders have the opportunity to access trusted, cost-effective broadband solutions.”
