An Act to Limit the Use of State Funds to Purchase Land or Conservation Easements (2003)

Would have meant fewer local properties preserved for farmland, recreation, and boat access. It would have blocked any non-state group from receiving any Land for Maine’s Future funds for land conservation, even if the state provided only a portion of the money for the purchase. It also would have prevented a state agency that holds any interest in real estate purchased using LMF funds from contracting for management services.
