governments; and

WHEREAS, Many of the State license fees, contained in Article 56 of the
Annotated Code, on a variety of business activities have not been adjusted for
decades even though costs, whether in the private or public sector, have increased
considerably; and

WHEREAS, It is estimated that these license fees will produce over $3,000,000
in revenues for the counties and Baltimore City and the State's 3% fee of certain
licenses to fund the License Bureau of the Comptroller's Office exceeds $107,000;

WHEREAS, Although the potential gain through an analysis of these license
fees would not be large in terms of the total State or local government budgets,
adjustments of license fees could increase revenues for the local governments; and

WHEREAS, There also may be inequities among various businesses subject to
these license fees; now therefore, be it

Legislative Council, through the [[Joint Budget and Audit Committee,]] House
Committee on Ways and Means or the Senate Finance Committee, undertake a
study of the license fees imposed in Article 56 of the Annotated Code of Maryland

General Assembly; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution be sent to the Secretary of the
Legislative Council.

Senate Joint Resolution expressing the opposition of the General Assembly of
Maryland to any international agreement between the United States and the

of foreign produced oysters and shellfish.

WHEREAS, the General Assembly has learned of an impending agreement
between the governments of the United States and the Republic of Korea, which
agreement is designed to make possible the importation of Korean-produced frozen
oysters and other shellfish into the United States; and

WHEREAS, the proposed agreement envisions the importation of up to $25
million of Korean-produced frozen oysters and shellfish at the expense of, and in
competition with, American and Maryland products; and

WHEREAS, it would be extremely difficult to maintain quality control and
health standards over the foreign production and processing of shellfish, to the
detriment of American consumers; and

WHEREAS, the American oyster and shellfish industry is producing an ample
quantity of high quality products for the American market; and
