By LAURA ERNDE Staff Writer Two Tri-State area senators played a key role in giving pay raises to themselves and other members of Congress recently. Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Robert C. Byrd, both Democrats, were two of three senators who voted for the $3,073 cost-of-living raises in conference committee on Sept. 29, according to Roll Call Report Syndicate. Although the vote ended in a 3-3 tie, it was crucial because it avoided a vote before the entire senate. The House of Representatives had already passed the pay hike as part of a bill that gave raises to all federal employees.

After hearing that Gov. Parris Glendening wanted to dump spoils dredged from Baltimore Harbor into the Chesapeake Bay, E.J. Pipkin spent two years and more than $100,000 of his own money to defeat the plan. State Sen. Walter Baker, D-Cecil, voted with Glendening, so Pipkin took him on and defeated him by 24 percentage points. Now, a year and a half into his term, the Republican state senator is taking on another Democratic leader, U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski. Has Pipkin's reach finally exceeded his grasp?

Mikulski, a Democrat, said her lengthy time in public office - more than 30 years, including 17 years as a senator - matters.
