The wind lobby and more to watch this week

The O’Malley Administration is enlisting support for the governor’s offshore wind energy bill from people in all walks of life.

Emails went flying out to the media last Friday. First came word that 30 religious leaders from Prince George’s County would deliver letters Monday supporting the bill to P.G. delegates and senators on the committees that will handle the legislation.

Then we heard that on Tuesday, about two dozen Maryland health professionals — wearing lab coats and scrubs no less — would join business leaders Tuesday morning on Lawyer’s Mall near the State House to express their support for the bill, which they claim would save more than 400 lives and nearly $2.5 billion in health costs while creating more than 1,000 jobs.

And at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Gov. Martin O’Malley himself will testify in favor of the bill before the Senate Finance Committee.

And so, the legislative theater season is in full swing. Sit back and enjoy the show.
