There really isn't that much information out there about the past attempts to pass a Bottle Bill in Maryland. I found this obituary for David Houghton Suddeth that mentions he was a supporter of past attempts to pass a bottle bill in Maryland. Suddeth was a NASA spacecraft engineer who lived in Bowie. He died in 1992. I look forward to pressing forward with his efforts to pass a bottle bill in Maryland.
Here is his obituary.
