A look into the battle between Maryland and D.C. to host Washington's football team. And we speak to the newly elected Montgomery County Council President, Nancy Navarro.
If you live in Virginia, the state’s budget woes will hit you in the liquor cabinet next week. That’s when the price of wine and spirits goes up to help close a projected $2.4 billion revenue shortfall. The price hike is one more reminder that in jurisdictions like the Commonwealth and Maryland’s Montgomery County, where government agencies operate all the liquor stores, consumers often pay higher taxes and levies for their alcohol. We explore the economic forces—seen and unseen—that impact the selection and price of liquor around our region.
