2012 House Bill 5760: Mandate more wind turbine and other “renewable” electricity
  1. Introduced by Rep. John Olumba (D) on June 14, 2012, to mandate that 30 percent of the electricity sold by utilities come from non-conventional sources by the year 2025 (which in effect means more windmills). Current law mandates that 10 percent come from “renewable” sources by 2015.
    • Referred to the House Energy and Technology Committee on June 14, 2012.
