The End of Maine's Environmental Legacy

Today in the Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel, I discuss Maine's history of environment stewardship and the unprecedented attack launched by the LePage administration on a wide range of environmental and public health protections.

I also make brief mention of some of the money that out-of-state chemical companies Chemtura Corporation of Connecticut and Albermarle Corporation of Virginia have given to PACs and politicians in Maine. As I noted in another recent column, corporations with similar aims have also contributed money to Governor LePage's transition.
