Petition Background

If you've been to Maine's North Woods, you know what's at stake. Generations of Mainers have learned to love the outdoors while exploring Maine's 10 million acres of open space—from the Rangeley Lakes to Moosehead Lake to Mount Katahdin. But Governor Paul LePage is threatening to destroy the North Woods as we know it by letting counties drop out of the Land Use Regulation Commission, which protects the North Woods from reckless development. A committee has already started considering the bill.
