Town wants say in tribe's natural gas terminal

Residents in the town of Perry, Maine, say they should have input into the Passamaquoddy Tribe's plan to host a natural gas terminal on tribal land.

Residents point to an agreement between the tribe and the town over 390 acres added to the tribe's reservation in 1986. The tribe agreed to seek the town's input if any of the land was developed.

The tribe plans to host the terminal on 42 acres of that land. Officials say the deal will bring revenue and jobs but opponents, including some tribal member, fear destruction of the environment.
