Around 500 Marylanders joined hands around the State House building in Annapolis last night calling it a circle of support for the offshore wind energy legislation now pending in the General Assembly.
They were equipped with eco-friendly glow-in-the-dark miniature wind turbines handmade banners and signs and wearing electric blue t-shirts.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports…that neither lawmakers nor activists could remember ever seeing the State House encircled like this.
They were calling on the state Senate to approve the offshore wind legislation following its passage in the House of Delegates by a vote of 88 to 47.
Governor Martin O’Malley has backed the development of offshore wind energy as part of his 2012 agenda.
