TABOR (The Taxpayers’s Bill of Rights) poses a real threat to the future of our already under-funded conservation and environmental protection programs. The lesson from Colorado, another state with rich natural resources and a long history of conservation, is that budgeting through arbitrary formulas will damage our ability to react to calamity and opportunity alike. We want to continue to invest in Maine’s natural resources not divest.
TABOR would reduce Maine’s ability to maintain its valued parks and recreation areas that Mainers and tourists value. It would cap the already limited resources available to the Department of Environmental Protection to enforce current and future important laws that help keep our air, land and waters clean. It would restrict future investments in land conservation.
