The Schaefer administration is blaming the elimination of a committee for some of the difficulties in getting its legislative package approved in the House of Delegates.David S. Iannucci, the governor's chief lobbyist, pointed in particular yesterday to an administration bill that would have had presumed fathers sign a document acknowledging paternity at the birth of their children.The idea was to avoid court battles in any eventual child-support proceedings, but the bill was killed this month by the House Judiciary Committee.

THE Maryland House of Delegates is one house that's not a home.It's true that as the General Assembly gathers for its 1993 session, the key question taunting Annapolis rubberneckers is whether the dysfunctional House of Delegates can relax, get its act together and start behaving like consenting adults.The House has been wracked by two years of internecine backstabbing over state tax policies. It's been ripped apart by bitter regional rivalries. And it's divided by the ham-handed dictates of its autocratic speaker.

But supporters argued that employers might begin trying to regulate other lawful activities unless protections were provided by law.The bill got just five of the 11 votes needed for approval by the House Constitutional and Administrative Law Committee.

ANNAPOLIS -- The Schaefer administration's growth-management bill, which played well to business but seemed too weak to environmentalists, is expected to emerge from a Senate Committee with stronger language today.Sen. Gerald W. Winegrad, an Anne Arundel Democrat, said yesterday he has been working with the administration to punch up the original bill, which was itself a weaker version of one Gov. William Donald Schaefer introduced last year to control urban and suburban sprawl.The House of Delegates voted 121-13 earlier this month for House Bill 1195, now before the Senate Economic and Environmental Affairs Committee.

ANNAPOLIS -- A House committee last night fine-tuned and then unanimously approved a Senate bill intended to strengthen Maryland's open meetings law.The Constitutional and Administrative Law Committee's version of the bill differs from the Senate bill in mostly minor or technical ways.The most substantive changes involve an expansion of the definition of which "public bodies" are covered by the open meetings law, and a modification to the bill's original broad authority permitting meetings to be videotaped, televised or otherwise broadcast.

Today, members of the House Constitutional and Administrative Law Committee will spend most of their time becoming experts on the state's open-meetings law, a statute filled with so many loopholes that government bodies can easily shut their doors to keep out the public for the most superficial reasons. Delegates won't have any trouble recognizing the law's flaws.Yet Del. Anne S. Perkins, who chairs the House panel, already is complaining about the lack of time the committee has to grasp the essence of this issue.

ANNAPOLIS -- A coalition of newspaper and broadcast organizations appealed to a House committee yesterday to strengthen Maryland's open meetings law, but the chairwoman of the panel said she was uncertain how effectively backers had made their case for change.Delegate Anne S. Perkins, D-Baltimore, chairwoman of the Constitutional and Administrative Law Committee, said her committee had never considered legislation involving the open meetings law. As a result, she said, members were unfamiliar with the extent to which the present law had been circumvented.
