Senate panel OKs report critical of offshore wind farm project  

DOVER – The Senate energy committee has approved a draft report critical of a proposed wind farm off the Delaware coast.

The panel voted 4-2 in favor after dropping a recommendation that the Senate vote to instruct the legislature’s controller general to vote against the wind farm, which would kill the idea. The panel instead recommended that the Senate instruct the controller general to give serious weight to its report.

Stanton Democrat Karen Peterson, who voted against the report, said the hearings on which it is based were biased.

Three of four state agencies delayed a vote after controller general Russell Larson said there was no consensus in the General Assembly.
