Maryland is looking to boost its output of renewable energy this legislative session.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports there is a supermajority in the Maryland legislature that is likely to approve the state’s commitment.

The paper reports that when the General Assembly meet in January it is likely to approve the Maryland Clean Energy Jobs Act.

The measure would set a goal of 50 percent from renewables by 2030.

That would ensure that a certain amount of electricity would come from renewable energy sources.

In 2016 the governor vetoed a bill that would have had a 25 percent goal by 2020.

A supermajority overrode his veto the following year.
