Environmental Law Expert in Report on Controversial Bill

UMaine’s Sharon Tisher, a faculty member in the School of Economics whose specialty is environmental law and policy, testified Tuesday in a hearing in Augusta about a LD 1810, a bill that would allow landowners recourse when their property value has been harmed by environmental or other regulations, according to a Bangor Daily News story. Speaking on behalf of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, Tisher said the group is strongly opposed to the bill because it would “waive important environmental statutes and create a great patchwork of environmental regulations that would ultimately significantly depress property values.”
