Supporters of a dime-a-drink tax on alcoholic beverages in Maryland are set to rally in Baltimore on Tuesday.

The Maryland Health Care For All Coalition will convene at the state's AARP headquarters to release a new study showing widespread support for the tax, which coalition officials say would direct money to health care services for people with developmental disabilites.

Maryland lawmakers have long considered the tax — which would amount to roughly $2.40 on a case of beer — but the Senate and House remain divided over the issue.

The dime-a-drink bill failed in the last session, and a similar 5-cent alcohol tax failed the year before.
