And while officials in surrounding jurisdictions could have made millions of dollars by doing that work for  so long, Myers, the fire department’s medical director, has made nothing.  "I feel like it’s a service I can give It’s not taking money out of my pocket, ’ said Myers, a retired surgeon at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. “Every day’s a Sunday for retirees,”  Myers, 73, is responsible not only for overseeing emergency medical technician training, but for assessing firefighters’ performance in the field  and implementing new techniques and equipment.

That's what state Sen Brian E Frosh said his Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee would “likely" be discussing Thursday, when it sits down to vote on whether to send bills to the Senate floor.  Frosh, D Montgomery, the committee chairman, expects a spirited debate before the votes on Gov Mar tin O’Malley's gun control bill and his proposed repeal of the death penalty So far those bills, two of the most controversial of the session, have not ad vanced in the House of Del egates. But Frosh is willing to move quickly on both Still, he said, “a lot of people will have a lot to say about both bills. ’  O’Malley’s Firearm Safety Act of 2013 would ban mill tary style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips, mandate fingerprinting and licensing for future gun owners, and put a 10-round limit on weapons.
