3.27.03 Maine cruise ship bill hearings
Thu, 20 March 2003 11:28
I just learned that both Cruise Ship Discharge Bills (listed below) will be heard by the Natural Resources Committee on Thursday, March 27 in Room 437 of the State house at a 2 pm session that also includes hearings on three other bills. I don't know what time that means the bills will be heard, but they are fourth and fifth on the list.
The Cruise Ship bills are listed as
LD 1158 An Act to Protect Coastal Water (sponsored by Sen. Brennan)
LD 1271 An Act to Protect the Discharge of Certain Waste Waters into Casco Bay(sponsored by Rep. Adams)
You can view the text of the bills by going to the website http://janus.state.me.us/legis/lio Click on Bill Status, then Bill Text Search and enter the bill numbers.
Comments may also be sent to the Chairs of the Natural Resources Committee: Senator John L. Martin and Rep. Theodore Koffman, Committee on Natural Resources, 100 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333-0100.
Please send this to anyone else you think may be interested. I will keep you updated on any other information I receive. Mary
