Michael Dresser's fine article "Foes, supporters clash over Plan Maryland" (Dec. 12) finally made clear to me the statist, collectivist underpinnings of this "plan."
Reading about it on the Internet was futile because I was unable to penetrate the political camouflage. Mr. Dresser quotes Maryland Planning Secretary Richard Hall as saying "the plan does not create new law." But Senate Minority leader E.J. Pipkin says "it should be a bill."
Herein lies the crux of the deception by the proponents of the "plan." They're using the Obama gambit of imposing government control over the lives of citizens by circumventing legislative bodies.
