Democratic Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski emerged from a meeting with Howard County Executive Charles I. Ecker yesterday in Ellicott City saying there is "too much bureaucracy, too much inertia in decision making" in the federal government.The senator was told that the federal government made a mistake when it put Howard County in the Baltimore region for the purposes of the federal Clean Air Act. Unless the county is switched to the Washington region from the Baltimore region, Montgomery and Prince George's counties "will have an unfair competitive edge" in economic development, Mr. Ecker told the senator.

Republican Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. leads Democrat Kathleen Kennedy Townsend 46 percent to 43 percent in the race for Maryland governor, according to a poll for Washington television station WRC-NBC4 released yesterday. The poll is the first to show Ehrlich with a lead in the tightening contest, although it has a margin of error of 4 percentage points, meaning the race remains a statistical tie, as other recent polls have suggested. It was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc., which surveyed 625 likely voters statewide.

One of the questions Montgomery and Prince George's County voters face tomorrow is a cap on property taxes. It's not a cap, it's a straight-jacket. Perhaps choke-hold is more descriptive. Approval of the ballot question in either county -- or in Anne Arundel County, where a tax cap also is being proposed -- would be fiscal madness.The proposals, Question A in Montgomery and Question D in Prince George's, would limit annual increases in property tax revenues to the rate of inflation, with a 5 percent ceiling in Prince George's.

At least two developers are vying to lure the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services from its outdated Rockville complex in Montgomery County to spacious new digs in Prince George's County. Each firm is interested in building almost 1 million square feet of office space for HHS near a Metro stop in Prince George's County. If constructed, such a complex would relocate about 5,000 federal jobs to the county, fatten property tax coffers and serve as a major anchor near a transit station.

EAST IS EAST, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet. Rudyard Kipling wrote that, but the bureaucrats and surveyors who laid out Maryland's highway system might as well have.There are several major north-south arteries in the state, but few cut horizontally, besides Interstate 70. The Maryland grid is one Dwight Eisenhower could still love, with its '50s pattern of ring-roads around the major cities and spokes fanning out to suburbia. The system barely recognizes the sweeping changes in work and lifestyles that now link suburb to suburb.

Severe thunderstorms that brought damaging winds and heavy rain knocked out electricity to at least 24,000 customers in Anne Arundel, Howard, Prince George's and Montgomery counties yesterday evening. The storms also forced road closings in Howard and disrupted phone service, authorities said. "Right now, it looks like it's straight-line wind damage and probably not a tornado," said Dewey Walston, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va. By 10 p.m., about 21,400 customers remained without power, said Rose Maria Kendig, a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. spokeswoman.
