O'Malley signs more than 100 bills into Law

Among the bills that Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley signed into law in early April are those that relate to energy efficiency. These bills prod Maryland energy companies to sell more alternate energy sources, and Maryland as a state to reduce power use by fifteen percent in the next seven years. One bill that was not passed involved a movement to cut carbon dioxide emission 90 percent by 2050.

Additional measures included a mortgage lending reform measure, a repeal of computer service tax, and permission for banks to wave closing costs on mortgages paid before due.
