AMC Still Opposes Northern Pass Project in New HampshireAMC is concerned about a proposal to construct a 186-mile-long power line through New Hampshire which would negatively impact the White Mountain National Forest and Appalachian Trail. In late June 2013, after two years of delay, Northern Pass finally announced its preferred route for the northernmost 74 miles of the transmission line corridor. While Northern Pass has tried to promote this as a "new" and "better" route in a massive media campaign across New Hampshire, in fact, it is neither. Find out why AMC opposes Northern Pass >>

Concerns over Mining Law Changes in Maine
AMC is concerned about proposed changes to mining regulations in Maine, recently drafted by the Maine Board of Environmental Protections (BEP). If adopted, the weak rules would further increase the risk of pollution from mining operations and would loosen the upfront financial responsibility requirements for mining companies. Despite overwhelming public input demanding strong and protective mining rules, the BEP has continued to include loopholes that would undermine environmental protections. These mining rules will have statewide implications and will impact the overall vitality of Maine's natural resources and recreation-based economy. The BEP will vote on the proposed mining rules in January, and we need you to speak up in support of changes that would strengthen these regulations. Click here to take action!
