Now the hearings are about to begin. On Wednesday, a joint committee composed of members of a House Judiciary Committee subcommittee and a House Government Reform and Oversight Committee subcommittee will start taking public testimony from witnesses.

The future of the state's Office of Sports Promotion will be determined by a joint committee of House and Senate representatives.That move was made necessary yesterday, when the full Senate passed recommendations from its Budget and Taxation Committee to cut $250,000 from the program's budget.Because the Senate legislation is different from that passed by the House, the legislation must go to the conference committee for a compromise agreement.The House previously voted to cut only $125,000 from State Games and left the OSP's remaining request for $664,000 intact.

Maryland lawmakers moved forward yesterday with an effort to undo a court decision that undercut protection of sensitive waterfront areas. They also proposed language that would toughen penalties for violations of state and local laws. The proposed legislation - reviewed by the Joint Committee on Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays Critical Areas - would reverse a ruling by Maryland's highest court in favor of a wealthy landowner who built a hunting lodge and cabins on a remote Nanticoke River Island.

Marion Block Anderson,70, a peace activist who took her cause to the Joint Chiefs of Staff by crashing one of their meetings, died Dec. 7 of cancer in East Lansing, Mich. The threat of nuclear war moved Mrs. Anderson to action, said her son, Dave Anderson. In 1958, she went to the nation's capital and testified before the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy. On her way to a demonstration against the Vietnam War in Washington in 1970, she changed her mind and asked her taxi driver to take her to the Pentagon.
