As quickly as I used to be elected to the One hundred and twenty fifth Legislature As a Outcome of the senator from Franklin County, I used to be given The respect to serve on a particular choose committee to Deal with LD 1, “An Act To Guarantee Regulatory Equity and Retype.”
The committee’s objective was To Search out out how we might enhance the regulatory environment Contained in the state.
One space we decided needing streamlining was Maine’s Board of Environmental Safety. Many companies and environmental teams felt the BEP was getting Slowed down in managing the Division of Environmental Safety and conducting listening tos on too many tasks Rather than Specializing in tasks having An monumental environmental influence on the state. One such enterprise is CMP’s Clear Power Join.
Sadly, All of the work on LD 1 has been misplaced on right now’s BEP chair. Think about thOn The distinctive permit attraction filed in April 2020 is scheduled to be taken up over two years later. That he Will not permit any testimony on what has occurred associated to the hall As a Outcome of The distinctive attraction was filed, collectively with The deptcommissioner’s permit suspension and the November referendum vote.
Extra disappointing That He is not permitting public testimony.
