Effective Date: June 01, 2009
I’m pleased to report that all three camp road bills have been enacted by the Maine Legislature! They should be on Governor Baldacci’s desk for signature this week.
Thanks to all who worked on getting these passed. In particular, I want to thank Representative Bob Duchesne, who went the extra mile to get the bills introduced after the deadline and was a sponsor and strong advocate for all three bills; and Senator Richard Nass, who came to the three different committees and provided strong supporting testimony. Thanks also, to Maggie Shannon and Betsy Bowen, for putting in long hours in and outside the committee rooms in order to speak in support, and to my colleagues here at DEP, Wendy Garland, Kristin Feindel, Bill Laflamme and Barb Welch, who have also been key to getting these through, and will be working now toward their effective implementation.
Here are the bills, with links to their summaries, including text and amendment language:
