LePage Begins Assault on Environment

At Down East, I take a quick first look at the drastic changes to environmental protections proposed by governor LePage in his first list of recommendations to the Legislature's Joint Select Committee on Regulatory Fairness and Reform.

Basically, it's an unprecedented attack on virtually every aspect of Maine's system of environmental and consumer health protections.

The entire list is now available online thanks to the Kennebec Journal.
