Maryland's two U.S. senators said yesterday that they are backing legislation to rescind the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's authority to determine the sites of liquefied natural gas terminals.
Sens. Barbara A. Mikulski and Benjamin L. Cardin are among officials who oppose plans to build an LNG terminal in Sparrows Point. The federal commission is expected to rule this year on whether to permit the facility.
The Maryland Democrats said they have joined an effort led by Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, to repeal the part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 that allowed the commission to authorize LNG terminals.
Wyden's bill is similar to legislation introduced by Mikulski and Cardin a year ago to give state and local governments the right to veto the location of LNG terminals.
Woman sought in man's stabbing
County police said yesterday they are seeking a woman on a charge of attempted first-degree murder in the stabbing of a man in Catonsville this month.
Police said they have a warrant for the arrest of Angela Daney Kelly, 24, who they believe might be in southwestern Baltimore City. She is accused of stabbing a 22-year-old man in the chest during an argument in the 400 block of Melvin Ave. about 1:55 a.m. April 4.
The victim, whom police did not identify, was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in critical condition, police said.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call county police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866- 756-2587.
