"News & Issues" piece on a new Land Use Regulation Commission (LURC) rules change that will allow new public boat launches to be built on 92 percent of Maine's lakes in the unorganized territory without applying for a permit from LURC, as long as they meet certain performance standards. The permit-by-rule boat launch will allow the Department of Conservation and the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife to site ramps wherever they choose, without a public hearing. George Smith, executive director of the Sportsman's Alliance of Maine, said LURC's decision to exempt special undeveloped lakes in the Class 2 management category was "outrageous," but it was a win for environmentalists.
