Maryland Gov. Proposes Renewable Energy Mandate
"We need to get with it," the Republican governor said. "We want to be No. 1 when it comes to alternative energy in the United States of America."
If Ehrlich's proposal is enacted, it would put Maryland on the forefront of alternative energy use. Environmentalists and other observers are cautiously optimistic, noting similar pledges dating back to 2001 that have received no funding and produced no results. Says Brad Heavner of Environment Maryland, "My feeling is, show me the contracts. We've been hearing promises like this for six years."
