Three of Maine's four congressional delegation members sent a letter to President Obama last week saying they have "serious reservations and significant concerns" about the president designating more than 100,000 acres of Maine forestland near Baxter State Park as a national monument. U.S. Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King and U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin wrote in the letter that even though bringing new economic development to that economically depressed region of the state is important, the national monument designation would likely antagonize already divided local communities. The designation, which is sometimes a precursor to creating a national park, is being pushed by Elliotsville Plantation Inc., the foundation that owns about 70,000 acres of the land.
Do you support 100,000 acres of Maine's North Woods being designated as a national monument?
