Modernization of Maine's Mining Rules & Development
Wishcamper Center, University of Southern Maine
Following the Annual Meeting, this month’s forum will consist of a lively discussion of the proposed revisions to Maine’s 20-year old mining rules. Pursuant to a law enacted in the 125th Legislature, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is in the process of revising the rules, which are scheduled to go to the Legislature for a vote in 2014. Following public hearings but prior to finalization of the rule, this E2Tech forum will bring regulatory, business, environmental and legal groups together to discuss the rulemaking and its potential impacts.
