Ocean City tourism industry and government officials are portraying two offshore wind projects as dire threats to the resort's economy in a last-ditch effort to push the turbines farther out to sea.

They took their case Tuesday to Annapolis, pressing a Maryland Senate panel to support legislation that would require the developers to erect the structures no closer than 26 miles offshore.
