In 2013, the Maine Legislature and its committees considered a diverse portfolio of environmental bills related to paint recycling, mining regulations, wind siting & permitting, consumer products, climate adaptation, petroleum transportation, and many other topics. Following on its successful and informative forum on Maine’s new energy policy, E2Tech is teaming up with the Maine State Bar Association’s Natural Resources and Environmental Law Section to bring regulatory, environmental, business, and legal leaders together to discuss recent legislation and look ahead at activities to interpret, implement and comply with the new laws.

Speakers will include:

* Patricia Aho, Commissioner, Maine Department of Environmental Protection

* Pete Didisheim, Advocacy Director, Natural Resources Council of Maine

* Ben Gilman, Senior Government Relations, Maine State Chamber of Commerce

* Jim Katsiaficas, Attorney & Director, Perkins Thompson (Moderator)
