* Parole -- Abolish the state parole board, to keep criminals in jail. He introduced the bill last year, and it was killed in committee.
* Time off -- No longer allow criminals to get time off jail sentences for good behavior.
* Violent crimes -- Make a life sentence mandatory for anyone who is convicted of three violent crimes. He said he will co-sponsor the bill with Del. Ellen R. Sauerbrey, R-Baltimore County.
* Judges -- Require the election of district, circuit and appellate judges so they are more accountable to voters. He introduced the bill last year. It was killed in committee.
* Insurance settlements -- Require insurance companies to send a plaintiff in a winning lawsuit a copy of the settlement so that the plaintiff's attorney cannot cheat him. The bill passed the House last year, but was killed in the Senate.
Mr. Dixon said he is examining whether residents of Parr's Ridge condominiums in Westminster are due tax refunds because they pay city taxes but also pay private companies for trash collection, snow removal and street lighting. The city does not pay for those services at apartment buildings with more than three units.
Parr's Ridge is the city's first condominium project and will have 168 units upon completion. Residents say they spend $11,200 a year on the three services.
Del. Donald B. Elliott
* Victim notification -- Require notification of victims of child abuse or violent crimes when their attackers are to be released from prison.
* Taping therapy -- Require audio or videotape recordings of therapy sessions for alleged victims of child abuse so a judge or jury can view or listen to them.
* State registry -- Automatically purge suspected child abusers' names from a state registry after three years if the person has not been convicted. Now, a person may request removal of his or her name after five years, he said.
* Drug pricing -- Eliminate price discrimination by pharmaceutical companies.
Mr. Elliott, who operates Union Bridge Pharmacy with his wife, Jeanne, said drug companies charge hospitals, health maintenance organizations and mail-order houses 30 percent to 40 percent less than retail pharmacies.
He introduced the bill last year, and House leaders asked for further study. They sponsored a briefing on the issue in November and heard information from a dozen people, he said.
* Vehicle emissions -- Require all Maryland residents to pay an emissions control fee. Now, emissions tests are required only in the state's eight metropolitan counties, including Carroll. All residents should share in the cost of cleaning the state's air, he said.
The House Environmental Matters Committee killed this bill last year. Mr. Elliott said he expects the same this year because Del. Casper R. Taylor Jr., who likely will be elected House speaker, is from Allegany County, where there is no emissions inspection or fee.
* Smoking -- Designate certain areas in public places for smoking. Smokers should be accommodated in restaurants that seat more than 50 people, retail stores that employ more than seven full-time people and certain other public places, he said.
* Weapons -- Allow certain weapons on school property for historical re-enactments or other educational purposes.
* Shoplifting -- Make a person liable for damages on rental property, such as videotapes, that is not returned.
Del. Lawrence A. LaMotte
* Cloning -- Prohibit cloning of human beings. He said he wrote the bill after reading that cloning is being done at a university. He said he doesn't know if cloning of human beings is done in Maryland.
* Hygienists -- Create a state dental hygiene board to oversee licensed hygienists. Currently, hygienists are regulated by the State Board of Dental Examiners, but want a separate board, he said.
Del. Richard C. Matthews
* Parole -- Abolish the system, which Mr. Matthews said is used mainly as a way to ease prison crowding. Many prisoners who are on parole commit other crimes, and the Parole Commission ignores tough penalties enacted by the legislature and imposed by the courts, he said.
* Drunken driving -- Lower the blood-alcohol percentage for drunken driving to .08 from .10 percent. Eight other states have done so, he said.
* Comprehensive plans -- Require real estate agents to give prospective buyers government-written comprehensive plans so buyers know where new roads and other changes are planned in areas where they're house-hunting.
Mr. Matthews said he is studying whether the state could prevent people from filing civil lawsuits to receive monetary compensation for injuries when they've already received payment from an insurance company. He said he also would discuss with the Small Business Legislative Council how to help small-business owners compete with government-operated businesses in the same fields.
