Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is preparing to announce today whether he will sign or veto legislation aimed at reducing the sting of rising electricity costs.
House leaders decided this would be a fine time to give the governor a little push. The Maryland House Democratic Committee Slate has posted ads on various news web sites that links visitors to a site where they can calculate their utility bills with the new law or without it. It also enables visitors to deliver a message to Ehrlich, urging him "to put politics aside and act on behalf of the people of Maryland. Please sign the state legislature's 15% plan."
It comes one day after Ehrlich said he would not make his decision based on how many letters or phone calls came over the transom.
"That's not a way to exhibit leadership," Ehrlich said.
