    Filed By: ST CROIX VALLEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
    Filed Date: 12/2/2008
    Accession No: 20081208-0443
    Description: St Croix Valley Chamber of Commerce submits comments re Calais LNG under PF08-24. [Brief Summary & Comments: They state the project would provide economic opportunities as well as cleaner fuel for residents; however, the Calais community already could have access to natural gas from the Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline if it were a priority (Calais LNG would not provide natural gas to Calais; that would require another, separate project), and The Whole Bay Study indicates a net economic loss if an LNG project were to be completed in Passamaquoddy Bay.]
