Who'll tax the rain?

Drudge Report linked the headline about a government taxing - rain.
Quite a surprise that it's my home county.
Thanks to the Maryland House of Delegates, they probably won't be alone for long.
The county needs to raise about $130 million over the next five years from the new stormwater fee to cover their state requirements on stormwater management.
The fee will continue to be assessed after five years, but the county can’t predict those costs until it learns what its requirements are to meet state permits on stormwater management, according to Jim Caldwell, county stormwater manager.
UPDATE: Part of Paco's assortment.
