Maryland General Assembly meets in Annapolis each year for 90 days; State Circle reports weekly on the legislature during that period. This episode consists of live coverage on the last day of the 1997 session, with several hours to go before the midnight deadline. Among the legislation completed by airtime was a bill that would reduce state income taxes by 10 percent over five years, and a bill to encourage redevelopment of contaminated industrial sites (“brownfields"). The “Smart Growth” bill, which would allow state money to be spend only in certain areas and limit suburban sprawl, was expected to pass easily after legislators had worked out a compromise the previous week. Jeff Salkin and John Aubuchon interview Gov. Parris Glendening; Del. Robert Flanagan, House Minority Whip; and Alan Rifkin, lobbyist representing the owners of the Pimlico and Laurel horse racetracks (previously Gov. Schaefer's chief legislative council). Program ends with an announcement that State Circle would return to the air at 11:30 that evening.
