Put The Brakes On
LD 141 Now - !!
Here's Why and How

LD 141 could be voted on by the Legislature as soon as MONDAY APRIL 10.

Legislators are urged to support Joanne Twomey's moratorium on new permits for construction and demolition debris sorting facilities and new permits for CDD incinerators. The permits allowed under proposed rules will open the door to import of millions of tons of raw demolition debris into Maine, most of which will be landfilled as a byproduct of the fuel processing. The rest will end up in our air, or in the ash which itself goes to landfills.

Contact Your Maine Senators and Representatives and ask them:
"Please vote for Joanne Twomey's Minority Report.
It gives us a 1-year Moratorium on New Debris Fuel Permits
and stops more importing, sorting, burning and landfilling of demolition debris in Maine!"

G-P's Correll gets $130 Million!!!
Not only was the State (Baldacci, Cashman, Dunlap, the Old Town Council, etc.) on its knees to service G-P ... now that the company has been bought by Koch Industries, its CEO Pete Correll (see memo from Cashman to Correll, as well as other documents about the State's giveaways at Dump Document Dispatch) will make $130 million from the deal! According to the Nov. 19, 2005 Wall Street Journal, "Georgia-Pacific Corp. Chairman and Chief Executive A.D. "Pete" Correll stands to receive stock-based compensation and other payments totaling about $130 million when the sale of the forest-products company to Koch Industries Inc. is completed. The 64-year-old Mr. Correll, chairman and CEO since 1993, was scheduled to retire in May and stood to exit with much of this money even without the $13.2 billion acquisition by Koch, a privately held company 80%-owned by brothers Charles and David Koch. But the deal has sweetened the send-off." Bon Voyage, Pete.
