...of promises about these new GMO products, but they are exactly the same promises that Monsanto made with their Roundup Ready crops," Pingree said. "and now parts of the country are being overrun by super weeds and there have been huge die-offs of milkweed and other plants vital to the monarch butterfly population. monsanto promised their gmo crops were going to result in farmers using fewer chemicals but just the opposite happened and you can expect the same thing to happen with dow's products."
"Both of these airports are making exciting contributions to Maine's economy," Pingree said in a prepared statement. "recent renovations at lafleur airport and its status as a foreign trade zone have strengthened its attractiveness to businesses. brunswick executive airport is offering important services to the innovative hub of businesses developing on the former naval base. these federal investments will help the airports keep up the momentum while improving operations and providing work to local contractors."
...In April, Pingree said, "the fcc is making the wrong call in this case and now it's up to congress to do the right thing and pass legislation that guarantees the internet treats all traffic equally."
