ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland House committee could vote soon on a measure aimed at developing offshore wind turbines.

Chairman Dereck Davis says the House Economic Matters Committee could vote as soon as Thursday on the legislation, which is a priority of Gov. Martin O’Malley.

Davis says he will support the bill, but the vote could be very close. Davis says it could end up being a 12-11 vote either way.

O’Malley has struggled to find enough support for the measure in the waning days of the legislative session. The General Assembly is scheduled to adjourn Monday at midnight.
