ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland House of Delegates has voted to override Gov. Larry Hogan's veto of a bill to boost the state's renewable energy standards.
The House voted 88-51 Tuesday for the override. The Senate is scheduled to vote on the Republican governor's veto Thursday. Last year, the Democrat-controlled Senate passed the bill 32-14, a margin above the 29 votes, or three-fifths, needed.
The measure would increase requirements to use energy sources like wind and solar to 25 percent by 2020. The state's renewable energy standard goal now is 20 percent by 2022.
