All of the official proceedings of the Maryland General Assembly - committee hearings, voting sessions, floor debates and so on - are open to the public. Anyone who cares to can watch as their senators and delegates discuss and vote on any of the thousands of pieces of legislation that move through the General Assembly every year. Anyone, that is, who happens to be in Annapolis. The options for those who can't hang around the State House and the House and Senate office buildings have gotten better in recent years, but they're still far from ideal.

Thomas V. Mike Miller, the blunt-speaking president of the Maryland Senate for the past two decades, says he will not run for re-election in 2010 - closing his legislative career after four decades. Miller, 63, has held the top spot in the Senate longer than anyone else in state history. If he is re-elected to that post in January, as expected, he will have served 24 years in that position - twice as long as the previous record-holder. "I still have all the enthusiasm," Miller said last night.

WASHINGTON -- At least eight U.S. senators were among 200 people evacuated last night from the Russell Senate Office Building after sensors in the building signaled the possible presence of a nerve agent, according to U.S. Capitol Police. An alarm in the building attic signaled the presence of a dangerous substance at 6:30 p.m., prompting the evacuation. A subsequent test was negative, but those evacuated were held in an adjacent garage for three hours, until additional testing confirmed that the scare was a false alarm.

ANNAPOLIS - George Clooney will be in Annapolis this week filming Syriana, a movie about the CIA's war on terrorism. The actor and crew are scheduled to set up shop in a conference room in the James Senate Office Building during working hours Tuesday and Wednesday, said Victoria Fretwell, public information officer for the Maryland Senate. "They've been very accommodating," Fretwell said of the crew, adding that filming will not interrupt legislators' schedules. "There'll be some trucks parked, but it's not going to stop the flow of traffic in any way," she said.

WASHINGTON - Senate office buildings began reopening yesterday as investigators said they still had not determined how the poison ricin got into the mail room of the Senate majority leader on Monday. Hundreds of congressional staffers lined up outside the Russell Senate Office Building across Constitution Avenue from the Capitol, when the doors opened just after noon, eager to return to their desks, which had been off limits for days. The nearby Hart building is scheduled to reopen today; the Dirksen building, where the poison was discovered, is supposed to be ready for business Monday.

WASHINGTON - A powdery substance suspected to be the poison ricin was discovered yesterday in a Capitol Hill mailroom near the office of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, raising new fears of bioterrorism. Several tests found the white powder to be ricin, a potentially deadly toxin derived from castor beans, and additional tests were being conducted. At a late night Capitol Hill news conference, Frist, a Tennessee Republican, said the incident was being investigated as a crime. Frist, a physician who has written about bioterrorism, sought to reassure Capitol Hill staffers that all precautions were being taken.
