In the first of several veto override showdowns this session, the House of Delegates voted 88-51 earlier today to override Governor Larry Hogan’s veto of the Clean Energy Jobs Act.

Maryland’s House of Delegates voted Tuesday 88 to 51 to override Gov. Larry Hogan’s 2016 veto of a bill calling for stronger renewable-energy standards, moving the Democratic-majority legislature one key vote away from enacting the changes without approval from the Republican chief executive.

The Senate, which passed the bill last year with a veto-proof majority, is expected to vote Thursday on whether to override Hogan’s veto.

Only a single Democrat, Anne Arundel Delegate Ned Carey of District 31A, voted against the override.
