Protecting Maine's Environment
Protect Maine from Mining Pollution
Dangerous mining rules are back again, for the third time! The LePage Administration is proposing mining rules that, if passed, would not protect Maine’s clean water or taxpayers! We cannot let irresponsible mining companies wreck Maine’s environment. Please tell your legislators that Maine needs strong protections to ensure mines will not pollute our waters or leave taxpayers with the costs of cleaning up mining disasters.
