TOMORROW: Cardin in Annapolis to Spotlight Historic Preservation Tax Credit and Crofton to Talk Small Business Success, Sustainability at Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company

TOMORROWMONDAY, FEBRUARY 5, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin will be in Annapolis to spotlight the continued need for expanded incentives for historic preservation, which benefit Maryland communities and our local economies, and to learn more about the special blend of quality and sustainability that has made the Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company a Maryland small business success story.

Monday, February 5 at 10:30 AM, Senator Cardin will join the leaders of Preservation Maryland and their fellow advocates for historic preservation in a roundtable discussion on the need for continued protection and future expansion of the Historic Preservation Tax Credit, which was retained but narrowed in the recently passed federal tax legislation. This tax credit, transformative for several sites in Maryland, continues to face significant long-term uncertainty at the national level despite its demonstrated ability to enable bedrock community revitalization projects. Senator Cardin and the participants will share their perspectives on how best to maintain the tax credit – and build on its success – long into the future.
