Business And Civic Leaders Push Offshore Wind Bill

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Minority business owners want the Maryland legislature to use its final days pass a measure to develop offshore wind energy.

Civic and business leaders are scheduled to gather Friday morning to urge the state Senate to pass the bill, which is
currently before the Finance Committee.

The measure passed the House of Delegates in an 88-47 vote last week and the General Assembly is scheduled to adjourn Monday.

Supporters are expected to highlight environmental benefits of the bill and will emphasize elements that dedicate funds to support minority businesses involved with developing offshore wind.

  • Say What

    Another handout to O’Malley’s buddies. Offshore wind is THE most expensive way to produce electricity known to mankind. Look it up. There is too much ‘wind’ inside the statehouse.

    ‘say what’ is 100% correct. Solar costs 24 cents per kilowatt hour. Selling carbon credits gets the cost down to 14 cents. No technology at this point can get the cost lower than 24 cents.
    O’Malley’s report to the general assembly is biased and filled with half truths. This is typical for Martin O’Malley. If you trust him, I can sell you the Bay Bridge.
