East-west highway records sought in Maine

AUGUSTA, Maine — Environmentalists joined with civil libertarians and residents of northern Maine Friday to support a bill that would make memos and other planning documents for projects like the proposed 220-mile east-west highway project subject to public disclosure.

The Legislature’s Transportation Committee held a hearing on a bill sponsored by state Representative Jeff McCabe, Democrat of Skowhegan, which would make records, notes, summaries, memorandums, and other information on transportation projects that are a public-private partnership open to public review.
