Maggie opposes the first Northern Pass proposal. As a state senator, Maggie worked to pass a constitutional amendment to prohibit the use of eminent domain for private gain, and she opposes the use of eminent domain for this project.
Maggie believes that we must protect the scenic views of the North Country, which are vital to our tourism industry. As Governor, she will ensure that, in accordance with the law, New Hampshire undertakes a rigorous review process of any proposal and provide significant opportunities for public voices to be heard.
Maggie hopes that the next proposal will address the concerns of the communities involved. She believes that burying the lines would be a more appropriate approach, and also supports looking into home-grown energy sources, such as the new biomass plant under construction in Berlin.
