Maryland Legislature Approves Greenhosue Gas Bill

The Maryland House of Delegates has voted 107-31 for a measure that commits the state to a 25 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.The measure seeks to reduce greenhouse gas through renewable energy and recycling, easing concerns by industry that the burden won't be put entirely on them.

Business and labor organizations support the bill because the current proposal specifically requires the state to ensure there will be no loss of manufacturing jobs as a result of the measure.

The Senate also has approved a similar bill. (, 3/26/09)
