Brian Nutter, MDOT, and others discuss Sears Island "4(f)" issue at JUPC meeting 2/8/07.

Senator Dennis Damon is co-chair of both the Transportation Committee and the Marine Resources Committee of the Maine Legislature.

Listen to Damon supporting construction of a container port on Sears Island, right in Penobscot Bay's top fish nursery at the May 2008 meeting of MDOT's Sears Island Joint Use Planning Committee, yet also supporting Maine coastal fisheries habitat protection and restoration at 3/19/08 Marine Resources Committee hearing. Can't have both, Senator.
