An Act To Amend the Law Governing Appeals of Final Agency Action on Applications Concerning Wind Energy Development
Sec. 1. 38 MRSA §346, sub-§4, as repealed and replaced by PL 2011, c. 420, Pt. A, §34, is amended to read:
Current law grants exclusive jurisdiction to the Law Court over appeals of final action by the Board of Environmental Protection or the Commissioner of Environmental Protection on applications for expedited wind energy development, general permits for tidal energy demonstration projects and general permits for offshore wind energy demonstration projects. Under this bill, a person aggrieved by any order or decision of the board or commissioner on an application for an expedited wind energy development may instead appeal to the Superior Court.
