The article reports that U.S. House Representatives have agreed to an amendment attached to a Coast Guard authorization bill that would allow Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney to block the Cape Wind offshore wind farm project in Nantucket Sound, Massachusetts. Jim Gordon, president of Cape Wind Associates, Boston, decried the move, noting that Cape Wind was approved by a key state board and is moving through an environmental review involving 17 federal and state agencies. Senate Energy Committee Chairman Pete Domenici spoke out against the amendment, which gives states veto authority over renewable energy projects on federal land.
