article by David Kibbe of Cape Cod Times
(3/26/03) reports that Massachusetts Governor Romney has created a panel to study offshore windfarms. The legislature had been considering similar action but the Governor's action preempts the need for legislation. Advocates of a task force assert that it's necessary because
