No CMP Corridor's Response to Finalized Ballot Language
FARMINGTON - The Secretary of State today released the final wording of the referendum initiated by CMP Corridor opponents to read as follows:
"Do you want to ban the construction of high-impact electric transmission lines in the Upper Kennebec Region and to require the Legislature to approve all other such projects anywhere in Maine, both retroactively to 2020, and to require the Legislature, retroactively to 2014, to approve by a two-thirds vote such projects using public land?"
"No CMP Corridor would like to thank the Secretary of State for drafting a question that we feel is straightforward and easy to understand," said Sandi Howard of No CMP Corridor. "More than 80,000 voters initiated this question, and come November, the people of Maine will finally have the opportunity to vote on the fate of the destructive CMP Corridor."
