Opponents To CMP Transmission Line Are A Step Closer To Making The Project A Ballot Question

Opponents of Central Maine Power's plan to build a major new power line through western Maine got the green light Friday to gather signatures for a statewide ballot question that could kill the project, which is formally known as the New England Clean Energy Connect. 

In a press release, Sandra Howard, the director of "Say No to NECEC," says the group will immediately begin to gather the tens of thousands of signatures needed to get the question on the ballot in November 2020.
