There is a move underway in Annapolis to impose on businesses the cost of providing health insurance to all Marylanders. And supporters are making a clever argument. Sponsors and proponents - socially conscious, if misguided - have co-opted the support of cynical commercial interests and are using the language of unfair business practices to achieve their ends. Dubbed the "Fair Share Health Care Plan," the legislation is bad policy, bad business, and bad for Maryland. Senate Bill 790 and its companion, House Bill 1284 require that private-sector employers with 10,000 or more employees in Maryland spend at least 8 percent of their payroll on health insurance.

One of the first orders of business for the Maryland legislature this month as they return to Annapolis is the vote to override the governor's veto of the Wal-Mart bill. The battle might be bruising. Actually we are not supposed to call it the Wal-Mart bill. The proper name is the "Fair Share Health Care Fund Act. " Isn't that nice sounding? Who could be against someone getting their fair share? But the only company that the bill will impact is Wal-Mart. Sounds like discrimination to me. The naming of the bill is a public-relations ploy.

o If you like reading Tim Rowland, you'll love watching him. See what else Tim has to say Several people have sent me the Associated Press news story revealing that Wal-Mart is now selling discount-priced coffins. I don't know if these communications were intended as a point of information or a suggestion. After some serious research, I found that Wal-Mart is indeed offering a line of caskets on its Web site, ranging in price from about $900 to $3,000. Apparently, this is a considerable savings over caskets provided by funeral homes, although I do not know this for a fact and believe you me I don't want to offend anyone who might be doing my final makeup job.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Increased police calls to businesses on Washington Township Boulevard prompted municipal officials to question Monday whether they can recoup costs spent for officers' time. Specifically, the Washington Township Supervisors talked about whether they could charge a fee, possibly per call, to the businesses. Solicitor John Lisko said he'd look into the matter, but said he suspects there are very limited options, if any. Later, Washington Township Police Chief Barry Keller said he wouldn't want to deter people from calling for help because of an associated cost.
