Bangor Chamber Opposes TABOR

Ian Scott on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 3:29:01 pm

An update to last week's posting about the TABOR ballot referendum in Maine - The Bangor Chamber has come out in opposition to the measure.  Here is their statement in relation to Question 4 (TABOR) and Question 2 (excise tax reduction)

"While we fully support efforts to improve Maine's business climate and economic development, our board does not believe that either of these ballot proposals would accomplish that," said John N. Diamond, chairman of the Chamber's board of directors. "Both proposals contain elements that the board believes could seriously undermine local infrastructure as well as Maine's economic competitiveness. In light of that, the board believes that passage of either proposal would be detrimental to our region and our state."
