Greenhouse gas reductions pass

March 29, 2009|Times Wire Reports

The state would become one of a handful to commit on its own to reducing global-warming pollution, under legislation approved in both chambers of the General Assembly.

The House of Delegates voted 107 to 31 Friday for the measure, which would require the state to cut greenhouse gases 25% by 2020; the state Senate approved its version earlier this month. Lawmakers said they expected to resolve differences between the two versions and send the bill to Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley for his signature.
