'House of Cards' to Remain in Maryland
This past week week I wrote about the fight over tax incentives for House of Cards in Maryland, a piece that I had sat on for over a week hoping to see if a resolution would come in time for me to add it to the piece. I finally decided that one more week wouldn’t make a difference, and hit the “publish” button.
Turns out, all of three days would have made a difference. House of Cards will be staying in Maryland for season 3. Governor Martin O’Malley and his staff have been working to make a deal for the last two weeks and it appears it was successful. Thousands of jobs will return to Maryland in the next month or so, and in the meantime I’ll keep kicking myself for deciding to run a piece too soon, particularly during a week when everyone wanted to talk about what happened on Game of Thrones. I’m sure all ten of you who read the original piece will be happy to have this resolution.
