Maryland Debt Relief Guide
Maryland has always been a leader in innovation and tolerance. The Maryland Toleration Act, which preceded our Nation’s Bill of Rights, recognized Freedom of Religion for most citizens, was signed into law in 1649. Many famous abolitionists came from Maryland, including Frederic Douglass and Harriet Tubman. Home to the first railroad in the US in 1828 and the first telegraph line in 1844, the “Free State” has been a leader in the Nation’s growth.
Today, Maryland continues that same pattern of innovation and tolerance. Maryland led the way in the discovery of COVID-19 vaccines, as well as mapping the human genome.
Maryland voted yes on a referendum for same-sex marriage in 2012, three years before the ruling by the Supreme Court on June 26, 2015. Over 372 years since the toleration act of 1649, the state ranks as the second most tolerant state after Wisconsin.
“The economy in Maryland benefits from its culture of tolerance and innovation, plus its proximity to Washington, DC.” says Gary Herman, President of Consolidated Credit, “But inflation, rising housing costs, and other factors are challenging to your wallet. In a situation like that, you need to keep credit card debt under tight control.”
