Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law in 2010:
Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met – the number is likely to be at least 1,000 and perhaps as high as 2,000.
Instead, they got carried along in the wave of enthusiasm that emerged from the administration, the legislative committee, wind power developers and the governor’s task force. “Wind power was exciting,” says Pingree. “I think legislators had a sense we wanted to be bold and have the state be a real leader in this area — they may not have known how many turbines, or the challenges of siting that many turbines.”

It hasn't even been a month and these socialist elitists are well on the way to driving any honest working class family and any small businesses out of the state! Pingree has no clue of what work and honesty is, she's there because mommy said so, and she'll a good little bobblehead for the Mills debacle of destruction to the state! No, this is going to be the tipping point for many and the exodus from the state of Maine won't be just the young, it will be of all ages, those on fixed income will either leave or be subjected to little state run apartments, where the state can control them. The plan now is a state of carpetbaggers and their servants that make deliveries, clean toilets and driveways, and work in stores that they want to shop in! Welcome to the beginning of AGENDA21.
Well, just as the wind advisory panel concluded that people opposing wind had associated emotional connections, obviously the Baldacci cabal was overcome by " the wave of enthusiasm " Nice way to make policy.
