WASHINGTON -- Maryland's 5-year-old system of charging fees for charities that seek to raise money in the state withstood a constitutional challenge in the Supreme Court yesterday.The court turned aside an appeal by the Center for Auto Safety, a Washington-based consumer advocacy group founded by Ralph Nader. The center's appeal contended that the fee system favors local charities over those that raise money nationwide.The fee schedule was adopted in 1989, after state officials concluded that the fees they were charging were too low to produce the revenue needed to cover state expenses of monitoring charities.
