The Legislature’s Energy, Utilities, and Technology committee will be holding a public hearing May 18 at 1 p.m. concerning a new bill authored by Rep. Tiffany Strout (R-Harrington) to stop the development of offshore wind along the coast of Maine. Strout, whose son is a student lobsterman, submitted the LD 1884 on behalf of area fishermen who are concerned that the development and installation of offshore wind turbines will further imperil their livelihood.
