"For much of the state of Maine, the environment is the economy"
                                           — US Senator Susan Collins, 2012 Jun 21

Congressman Tom Allen
spams Save Passamaquoddy Bay

Even though Congressman Allen won't answer our questions regarding his position on LNG in Passamaquoddy Bay — presumably because we aren't in his Congressional District — he, nevertheless, has sent us his promotional email, hoping to win our votes in his upcoming election against Senator Susan Collins.

That's known as illicit email — email "spam."

For the record — nearly 600 days after asking — Sen. Collins, Sen. Olympia Snowe and Cong. Mike Michaud also won't answer our questions; however, at least they have responded with non-compliant political gibberish. Cong. Allen hasn't even given us the courtesy of a reply.

FERC has no TRI reporting requirements
for LNG terminal applicants

Three FERC officials have indicated to SPB by telephone that they know of no requirements for LNG terminal applicants to demonstrate that they have Title, Right, or Interest (TRI) in land.

This means that unscrupulous developers could make fraudulent claims of TRI — or could lose TRI and hope to regain it without notifying FERC — and FERC, and all the other involved federal agencies, might continue to waste taxpayers' money on the application process when the applicant can't use the land.

Is this responsible government?
