Under the lead of the Maine Department of Transportation, collaborating with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and the Governor’s Energy Office, a plan has been drafted that includes projected qualifying expenditures from the Trust. According to the document:
The State may adjust the goals and specific spending plans at their discretion when necessary to achieve the Plan’s goal. In addition to the above listed plan components, the process for seeking and considering public comments will be established as required by the Partial Consent Decree.
The State will provide updates regarding Maine’s actions for meeting the requirements of the Partial Consent Decree and the Mitigation Trust to the Trustee and will be made available to the public on MaineDOT’s public webpage at www.maine.gov/mdot.
This proposed mitigation plan is not a solicitation for projects and does not include detail on the competitive application or project selection process.
