Maryland General Assembly meets in Annapolis each year for 90 days; State Circle reports weekly on the legislature during that period. This episode summarizes the 1993 session. Legislators approved funding for the $150 million Baltimore Convention Center expansion; passed legislation to slow the rising costs of health care and make affordable insurance available the 600,000 uninsured in Maryland; to require cars sold in Maryland to meet higher emission standards; regulating the sale of handguns and assault weapons at private gun shows; made carjacking a separate crime; approved a right-to-die bill. Reporters interview officials to get their perspective on this session: Gov. William Donald Schaefer; Senate President Thomas V. "Mike" Miller; and House Speaker R. Clayton Mitchell, Jr. David Paulson questions a panel of journalists: Lou Panos (Patuxent Publishing), C. Fraser Smith (Baltimore Sun), Jim Miller (WPOC radio). MPT reporters David Paulson, Anne-Hope Johnson, Nate Howard, and Jeff Salkin close the program with their thoughts about the 1993 session.
