LD 1400 An Act To Create the Bar Harbor Port Authority, Sen. Langley (R-Hancock)

The bill provides for the creation of the Bar Harbor Port Authority by asking the voters of Bar Harbor to approve the Authority at an election to be held within two years after the effective date of this Act. There was push-back from a few legislators who were concerned about cruise ships in general coming to Bar Harbor and thought surrounding towns should have a vote as well. It received an unanimous report out of committee and should soon be enacted in the House and Senate.
