The state Senate voted Thursday to override Gov. Larry Hogan’s veto of a bill requiring the state to increase the portion of its electricity that comes from renewable sources. The House voted to overturn the veto on Tuesday, so the bill now becomes law.
The bill requires Maryland to get 25 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by the year 2020, increasing existing requirements.
The measure passed on party lines.
Democrats say the measure helps the environment while creating jobs.
