Key senators gave a favorable reception yesterday to legislation designed to limit the influence of campaign contributors in Annapolis, but the state's budget crunch may still stymie the chances for reform this year. Some Senate leaders, including Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, remain opposed to the most ambitious of the proposals, which would establish public financing of campaigns. But members of the Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee, which has jurisdiction over the issue, appeared receptive to the idea.

A bill in the General Assembly that would alter the way Anne Arundel County Board of Education members are chosen has passed the House and is scheduled to be heard in a Senate committee. The bill, which was supported by 10 of the county's 15 delegates, would create a 15-member nominating committee. The governor would be allowed to appoint school board members only from among the names submitted by the commission. School board members would then appear on the ballot in the next general election to retain their seat.

State Sen. Paula C. Hollinger - a 26-year veteran of Maryland politics and one of the most influential members of the Senate - announced her candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday, ending months of speculation and heating up the race for Maryland's 3rd Congressional District and her own General Assembly seat. Appearing in a plaza fronting the University of Maryland Medical Center and before a crowd of supporters holding "Nurses for Hollinger" and "Women for Hollinger" signs, the sole female head of a Senate committee stressed her experience as a legislator and former nurse.

Senate shuffle isn't intended to block reform The picture painted in last week's "The Political Game" column regarding Senate committee assignments sadly does not reflect reality ("Governor's alliance gets `good swift kick,'" Nov. 23). The recent changes to Senate committee assignments simply reflect a typical, midterm realignment of committee members, not a calculated move on the part of Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller to manipulate votes against tort reform. After the death of state Sen. Robert H. Kittleman, Sen. Sandra B. Schrader was reassigned to fill his seat on the Budget and Taxation Committee.
