Bill that could spur offshore wind development heads to full Legislature

A group of conservation, labor and political organizations lauded the bill as “significant because it includes strong standards for labor, equity and wildlife protection, and includes a unique compromise with fishing interests to avoid development in a key fishing ground,” according to a news release.

The organizations are Maine Audubon, Maine Labor Climate Council, Natural Resources Council of Maine, Union of Concerned Scientists, Maine Conservation Voters, Maine Climate Action Now, Iron Workers Local 7, Laborers’ International Union Local 327, Sierra Club Maine, and Maine State Building and Construction Trades Council.
