For the third time in three years, Governor Martin O’Malley launched today an ambitious bid to locate giant wind turbines off the coast of Ocean City. WYPR’s Karen Hosler reports that the breeze may finally be at his back.
Karen Hosler: Flanked by a coalition of business, labor, civil rights and environmental activists, Governor O’Malley took up the cause of offshore wind power once again today—this time amid assurances that he finally has enough support for General Assembly approval.
Governor O'Malley: Sometimes big, challenging ideas take more than one session to, to get accomplished.
Hosler: But Senate Republican Leader E.J. Pipkin, a long-time critic of the project, was unmoved.
State Senator Pipkin: Look this is just the dumbest idea ever because each year the governor brings it back, the economics get worse.
Hosler: O’Malley acknowledged further challenges ahead. I’m Karen Hosler, reporting in Annapolis, for 88.1 WYPR.
