Maine tribes to hand over documents
Facebook Twitter Email
TUESDAY, MAY 21, 2002

Two Maine tribes are going to hand over internal documents to paper companies this week after marching 33 miles to protest the order which requires them to do so.

State courts have ruled that tribes are subjection to the Maine freedom of information law when they act as municipalities. Because the records in question concern the regulation of water quality, the courts ordered the Penobscot Nation and the Passamaquoddy Tribe to comply.
