VICTORY: Gov. O’Malley vetoes anti-wind bill
The Maryland Legislature passed HB 1168, a moratorium on land-based wind energy in over 40 percent of the state and nearly 90 percent of Maryland’s most viable wind development areas. It would have significantly undermined Maryland’s progress toward a clean energy economy while setting a damaging national precedent that could stymie land-based wind power development across the country for years to come.
After grassroots activism that included almost 3,000 CREDO signatures, Gov. O’Malley vetoed the anti-wind bill.
