Passamaquoddy Tribe divided over gas terminal

Members of the Passamaquoddy Tribe of Maine are divided over a proposal to locate a liquefied natural gas terminal on the reservation.

Tribal officials say the $400 million project will generate jobs and revenue. The terminal would be located on 42 acres of the Pleasant Point reservation.

But some tribal members are worried about the potential environmental impacts. They have joined forces with local residents to oppose the plan.
