Some enviros not blown away by Maine space corp proposal
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Some environmental advocates are skeptical about a proposal that would establish a Maine Space Corporation.
A committee of the Maine Legislature passed the proposal in February.
It is designed to create a public-private partnership to help grow a space and aerospace industry in the state.
Maine Public reports opponents of the proposal think the idea of a rocket launch site in Maine is a bad one.
Former independent U.S. Senate candidate Lisa Savage said she feared the proposal could lead to bird strikes and environmental degradation.
