Gov. King and Maine Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Ned Sull
Gov. King and Maine Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Ned Sullivan have been traveling to Washington, D.C., trying to convince federal regulators to bend their way on issues of significance for Maine's air quality and the future of the state's paper industry. Maine last month convinced the White House to toughen clean air requirments on Midwestern states where coal-burning plants are contributing to Maine's summer ozone problem. Maine is still waiting for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to act on dioxin standards, which will affect the half dozen kraft mills in Maine that use chlorine bleach to whiten paper. The EPA has commissioned a five-year study of dioxin effects and has issued several drafts of new regulations, but the rules are not scheduled to become final until August. Details.
