Maine Revised Statutes

§7107. Dismantling of state-owned track

Except as provided in this section, the Department of Transportation may not dismantle or contract with a state agency or private entity for the dismantling of state-owned track. When the department, in consultation with a regional economic planning entity and a regional transportation advisory committee established in accordance with rules adopted under section 73, subsection 4, determines that removal of a specific length of rail owned by the State will not have a negative impact on a region or on future economic opportunities for that region, the Commissioner of Transportation shall seek review by the joint standing committee of the Legislature having jurisdiction over transportation matters prior to removal.
