"Resolve, To Continue Evaluating Climate Change Adaptation Options for the State" - Maine SP0733, LD 1818
This 2010 resolution extended authorization for the climate-change planning activities of Maine's Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) stakeholder group (previously granted authority under "Resolve, To Evaluate Climate Change Adaptation Options for the State": Maine SPO 163). DEP was directed to continue to evaluate adaptation measures available to the people and businesses of Maine. DEP was required to report its progress on developing the state's adaptation plan to the joint standing committee of the Legislature with jurisdiction over natural resources matters by January 2011, with a final plan to the committee and the governor by the following year.
This law required the department to report to the joint standing committee of the Legislature having jurisdiction over natural resources matters in 2011 and 2012, and authorized the committee to submit a bill relating to each report to the 125th Legislature.
The resulting final report is no longer hosted on Maine's Department of Environmental Protection website due to a change in the state's administration and climate policy.
