Maryland has become the first state to adopt legislation creating a new type of corporation - one required to perform social good as it works to make a profit. State lawmakers there say substantial credit goes to a Berwyn nonprofit organization and a Philadelphia lawyer, with Philadelphia's City Council playing a supporting role, in what is being hailed as a significant milestone for the sustainability movement. With a few pen strokes this week, Gov. Martin O'Malley signed legislation making so-called benefit corporations official in Maryland.

That's nearly double the national poverty rate, officially reported by the Census Bureau in August as 12.3 percent nationwide, and 17.4 percent for those under 18. Still, Michelle Obama stopped by the other day during a campaign visit and warned the locals not to go for the big money. "We left corporate America, which is a lot of what we're asking young people to do," she told a group of women at a day-care center.

Congressional Democrats unveiled a legislative agenda yesterday, topped by a proposal to reduce the number of abortions through higher spending on family planning. Although they are a minority in both the House and Senate, the Democrats sense an opportunity to push their own vision at a time when President Bush and Republicans appear bogged down and divided in fights over Social Security, ethics and the judiciary. The Democratic agenda calls for expanded veterans' benefits, fiscal discipline to reduce the federal deficit, cheaper gasoline and tightening corporate tax laws.
