Early Briefing: Iomai Takes a Step Forward

*Iomai of Gaithersburg got a boost from Merck, which said it would test the drug company's patch that is designed to stimulate a stronger immune-system response to vaccines. The companies didn't say what vaccine they'd use in the testing, to be conducted on animals. See story.

* Legislation that would let Constellation Energy give 1.1 million electricity customers in the Washington-Baltimore region a one-time, $170 credit on their bills won preliminary passage in the General Assembly.

*The Maryland Senate voted 30 to 17 to repeal Maryland's computer-services tax, and the House of Delegates is expected to follow suit soon. The repeal is in response to people who said it would undercut the state's IT sector.
