House passes wind energy bill

Senate prospects appear better this year

February 22, 2013|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

Over the objections of Republican lawmakers, the House of Delegates on Friday approved Gov. Martin O'Malley's bill to create incentives for development of a wind energy project off the coast of Ocean City.

The measure, a top item on O'Malley's legislative agenda, was approved 85-48. Its passage was not a surprise because a similar bill passed the House last year only to die in a Senate committee.

This year, the bill's prospects appear much better in the upper chamber. Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller has predicted it will pass.
