Bill to "fix" problems in and around Acadia National Park moves forward on Capitol Hill

For those following the effort to resolve jurisdictional and territorial conflicts in and around Acadia National Park, I had an update recently in the Portland Press Herald.

The bills that would fix the issues -- now revised to reflect public comments and supported by the entire Maine Congressional delegation (two Republicans, a Democrat, and an independent who caucuses with the Dems) -- is finally advancing, with a long delayed hearing scheduled for tomorrow at the US House Natural Resources Committee. Among other things, it explicitly permits clammers and wormers rights to dig in the inter-tidal mudflats adjacent to park land.

Details herein.
