Solar energy projects are sweeping the region, from rooftop and community solar panels to large-scale farms. We'll talk about community solar programs, bigger solar projects and how these intersect with state legislation.
Gov. Larry Hogan would like to widen the Beltway and Interstate 270 in Montgomery County, and has suggested that this could be accomplished through a public-private partnership supported by optional toll lanes.
The idea does not sit well with many Montgomery County officials and politicians, who fear the project will encroach on neighborhoods that lie alongside these roads. A newly-filed bill in the House of Delegates would assure the county gets to veto any toll road plan it doesn’t like. Is it a necessary measure? Or does it not go far enough to make sure local voices are heard in the great roadway debate?
