LD 1820 would change commercial whitewater rafting laws to allow outfitters to buy another outfitter's business and allocated river space. Small rafting companies oppose the measure, fearing it would allow larger companies such as New England Whitewater Center to create monopolies. State representative Elizabeth Mitchell, D-Vassalborough, said that she would prefer a study of Maine's whitewater rafting laws, created 13 years ago amid complaints of overuse of the state's most popular rivers. The bill was still pending Monday as legislative leaders put together conference committees to try to make it more acceptable to both houses.
