Sears Island Container Port Bond Bill killed by Maine Legislature

Click here to listen to the Maine legislature vote on  February 29, 2012,  to kill LD 420 "An Act To Authorize a General Fund Bond Issue To Fund Building a Container Port on Sears Island"  and  three other transportation  bond proposals.  (A 90 second recording)

LD 420 would've put a ballot question before Mainers to have their descendants pay 200 million dollars plus interest to build a gigantic containerport now . This to be leased to non-existent containerport wannabees. The legislature's Appropriations & Financial Affairs Committee just said No.
