A Flicker of Intelligence in Maine

Folks,

This morning, the Maine Legislature’s Joint Standing Committee on Marine Resources voted unanimously to support LD 72. This legislation will allow alewives unimpeded access to the St. Croix River above the Grand Falls Dam FOR the first time in several decades!!!!

We hope that the House and Senate will approve LD 72 this week and send it over to the Governor for final action. It is not too late to contact your representatives to ask them to support LD 72!!

Stay tuned for more updates as the situation develops…. http://www.pressherald.com/news/maine-alewives-st-croix-river-legislature-dam-watershed.html John
