Gov. John Baldacci has proposed a $79 million bond package that would pay to save the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway as well pay for highway and road work, port and harbor improvements and environmental and energy projects. Will this spending act as a

stimulus to Maine’s economy? Will it create real jobs? Or will it be a poor use of tax dollars?
