State Circle Special: Pfisteria Crisis
State Circle provided weekly coverage of Maryland politics while the state legislature is in session. This special hour-long edition concerned the microbe Pfiesteria that killed fish, sickened people and disrupted the state's seafood industry the previous summer, and the General Assembly's efforts to deal with the problem. It was called an "Electronic Town Hall Meeting," with experts in the MPT studios in Owings Mills and farmers, watermen and other citizens in Salisbury. Viewers of the program could participate by calling-in or sending a fax. Jeff Salkin moderated a panel that included Del. Ronald A. Guns (Eastern Shore), Del. James W. Hubbard (Prince George's County), Steve Weber (Maryland Farm Bureau), and Thomas Grasso (Chesapeake Bay Foundation). Reporters: John Aubuchon, Nate Howard.
