Committee approves bill seeking approval for northern Maine transmission line

Connecting Aroostook County to the ISO-New England could be a game-changer for the region. Not only would it support quality, good-paying jobs, but it would also grow our supply of cheap, clean, renewable energy — energy that is desperately needed. I’m grateful to the bipartisan group of lawmakers on the Legislature’s Energy Committee who voted in favor of this proposal. It brings us one step closer to making the Northern Maine Transmission Line a reality.
