State Circle. Episode 914
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 1995 session. Legislators approved a welfare reform pilot program requiring recipients to perform community service or enter job training after three months; passed a bill to give a tax credit to businesses who hire welfare recipients; reduce the number of post-conviction appeals available to a death row inmate; approved mandatory sex offender registration; and a ban on smoking in every workplace with exception of bars and restaurants with a smoking area. New legislation mandates that lobbyists disclose any gift to or meal with any legislator worth $15 or more. Gov. Parris Glendening, Senate President Thomas V. "Mike" Miller, and House Speaker Casper R. Taylor Jr. are interviewed as well as Republican Senators Robert Kittleman and Jon Cade. New lawmakers (62 in the House, 20 in the Senate) are profiled. MPT reporters Jim Nash, Karen Allyn, Nate Howard, Annette Gibbs-Davis, Diane Richards, and Jeff Salkin close the program with their thoughts about the 1995 session.
