The Maryland Alliance for the Poor presented the House Appropriations Committee with a $90 million list of requests to expand services for low-income Marylanders, including the return of more money to the working poor at tax time, increasing cash assistance for the disabled and helping working parents continue their education.

The Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. won a victory yesterday in its fight with a group of businesses opposed to the utility's expansion into heating and air conditioning repair and appliance sales.The state's Public Service Commission ruled that BGE's entrance into those businesses through its Home Products and Services division was not supported by revenues derived from power generation or transmission."We're gratified that the commission agreed with us, and that a royalty payment was inappropriate," said Arthur J. Slusark, a BGE spokesman.

ANNAPOLIS -- On the heels of a national study citing Maryland as one of the states cutting deepest into poverty programs, advocates for the poor yesterday proposed tax increases to raise nearly $700 million, restore some aid and fend off future cuts.The plan, drafted by the Maryland Alliance for the Poor, includes raising taxes on incomes over $50,000, increasing corporate taxes and levying sales taxes on such personal services as dry cleaning, cable television and health club services."We are appalled and ashamed that Maryland ranks among the seven worst states" in cutting programs for the poor during the recession, said Lynda Meade of Associated Catholic Charities, referring to a report released Wednesday by the Center for the Study of the States.

When it comes to the Associated Heating & Air Conditioning Contractors of Maryland, the Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. isn't welcome anymore.Upset that the $8.1 billion utility created an appliance repair and sales subsidiary and invaded their turf, the board of the contractors' group last week voted to eject BGE as an associate member.In terminating their membership, AHACC expressed the opinion that BGE had "operated certain aspects of its business unethically," did not work in the best interest of the group and engaged in "unfair competition."

If the stress is getting to Chris Poindexter, the Baltimore Gas and Electric chairman and chief executive shows few signs of it.He exhibits no sign, for instance, of any pressure generated by a pending merger with the Potomac Electric Power Co., a partnering that would create the nation's ninth-largest power concern and double BGE's size.He displays no signal that he is anxious, even though federal, state and Washington, D.C., regulators could significantly alter the structure of the planned $15.4 billion utility, or reject it completely.

Local LendingThe Sun's headline writer and, to a lesser extent, writer David Conn erred in reporting June 9 that the Maryland Alliance for Responsible Investment (MARI) had filed a protest with federal regulators to "oppose" the acquisition of MNC Financial by NationsBank.As Mr. Conn's article correctly noted, NationsBank has agreed to live up to the terms of an existing community reinvestment agreement, presently between MARI and Maryland National Bank.That agreement expires in March, 1995, giving MARI about 18 months to work with the new management and, we hope, to negotiate a long-term continuation of innovative lending programs pioneered by Maryland National.
