By Sarah Miller Staff Writer The Tri-County Council wel-comed Southern Maryland DelegatesTony O’Donnell (R-29C) and SallyJameson (D-28) to talk about the legis-lative session to begin on Jan. 8, 2014.Projections show a $400 million
shortfall in the next scal year, Jamison
said, adding that the state had been ad-
dressing the decit but the federal gov
-ernment shutdown could be a setback.Compounding the issue is the fact that, because of the coming election year, of-
cials will be reluctant to consider tax
increases.“There will be quite a hearty de- bate,” he said.Another possible issue in the com-ing session is a dram shop legislation,which would hold those with a liquor license liable for incidents of injuries or deaths as the result of drinking at their establishments, O’Donnell said, addingthe matter would draw protests fromrestaurant and bar owners.Other topics the delegates saidwould be discussed in the 2014 legis-lative session would be alternative en-ergy and its possible use in Marylandand a 43 year extension to keep theConowingo Dam operating. O’Donnellsaid if legislators want silt dredgedfrom behind the dam, preventing it
from exiting with overow when the
dam is opened, they have to make ithappen before extending the operationslicense.The Tri-County Council meetsquarterly on a rotating basis through-out Southern Maryland. The council ismade up of representatives of the coun-
ty commissioners, elected ofcials and
citizens from Calvert, Charles and St.Mary’s County.

By Sarah Miller Staff Writer A proposed zoning ordinanceamendment that would allow indoor commercial recreation facilities withspecial exception and conditions inthe light industrial zoning district wasmet with trepidation from the Board of County Commissioners at their Oct. 22meeting.The amendment is proposed to al-low facilities such as indoor recreational
soccer elds, dance studios and music
studios.Commissioner Pat Nutter was in fa-vor of forwarding the amendment to thePlanning Commission for further study, but questioned an aspect that wouldsee such uses going before the AppealsBoard.Commissioners Jerry Clark and Su-san Shaw were not in favor of the amend-ment, seeing it as potentially drawing business away from the town centers.“I haven’t supported it in the pastand I’m sure I won’t support it in the fu-ture,” Clark said, adding he would givethe matter the consideration it deserves before making up his mind.Commissioner Evan K. Slaughen-houpt Jr. said the amendment, broughtabout at the request of local businessowners, shows an effort on the part of  business owners to keep their operationsviable and may show a need for small business support in the county.The commissioners voted 3-2 tosend the amendment to the PlanningCommission at a future meeting.For more information, visit www.co.cal.md.us.
