Here’s a few other headlines for Wednesday:

  • The Baltimore Sun reports that even with passage of legislation to encourage offshore wind development, many hurdles remain.
  • The Washington Post reports that a House of Delegates committee is mulling significant changes to Gov. Martin O’Malley’s gun control bill, perhaps removing some semi automatic rifles from a banned list of firearms.
  • reports that a bill to prevent double jeopardy prosecution has failed in the House of Delegates.
