Passamaquoddy Tribe puts gas terminal to vote

Members of the Passamaquoddy Tribe of Maine will be voting on a proposed natural gas terminal on the tribe's Pleasant Point Reservation.

In June, the tribe signed a deal to build a $300 million terminal on 42 acres of tribal land. Tribal leaders say it will generate revenue for the tribe and tribal members.

Some aren't convinced and don't the gas plant on their land. They are concerned about the impact on the environment.

Several other Maine communities rejected the proposed terminal.
