Last week Maryland Governor Larry Hogan vetoed a bill that would have extended the state's sales tax to accommodation fees in a move that drew praise from Travel Leaders Group CEO Barry Liben.

"On behalf of the more than 40,000 travel agents and 6,500 travel agencies that comprise our company, Travel Leaders Group applauds Maryland’s Governor Larry Hogan for his prudence in wisely vetoing the tax bill that would have extended the state’s sales tax to accommodation fees that travel agents may charge their clients as part of the services they offer," Liben said in a written release. "Through his veto, Governor Hogan has kept Maryland on a level and competitive playing field with all other states. As a result, travel agents throughout the rest of the United States can confidently book hotels within Maryland without the fear of onerous taxes."
