Lawmakers to convene on Saturday

April 10, 2010

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Both the Maryland House of Delegates and the Senate are working this weekend to prepare for adjournment.

Both chambers are gathering Saturday to catch up with unfinished business.

The House will be debating a bill backed by Gov. Martin O'Malley to make utilities generate more of their power by solar energy.

Supporters say it's important to grow the use of solar energy to help drive down energy prices. But opponents contend it will pass on costs to ratepayers and small businesses.

The Maryland General Assembly is scheduled to adjourn Monday at midnight.
