"News" piece on a recent meeting between Penobscot tribal governor Barry Dana, Gov. Angus King and others to discuss regulation of the Penobscot River. For the past year, the Indians have resisted state control of the rivers flowing through tribal lands because they doubt that Maine's environmental agency can adequately enforce clean water laws. Last year, Maine asked the federal Environmental Protection Agency for sole authority to issue wastewater discharge licenses in Maine. The request angered the Indian nations, who have suggested the state is too beholden to paper companies to protect rivers from pollution. Officials attending the meeting created a committee to explore the Indians' concerns further and to come up with solutions agreeable to both sides.
