ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Maryland Republicans are holding two news conferences to denounce tax, toll and fee increases.

A gas tax adding roughly 3.5 cents to a gallon of gas takes effect Monday. Toll increases around the state also are taking effect.

A deadline for the state's 10 most populated jurisdictions to set up fees for stormwater remediation also is Monday.

Republicans are holding a news conference in Stevensville on the Eastern Shore on Monday morning. They are heading west after that Frederick for another news conference Monday afternoon.

The GOP says it will be joined by business owners and community leaders.
