Passamaquoddy Tribe won't stop gas terminal talks

The council of the Passamaquoddy Tribe of Maine voted to continue talks to host a controversial $400 million liquefied natural gas terminal on the Pleasant Point Reservation.

The tribe was dealt a setback when voters in a nearby town rejected the plan. The tribe was required to seek the town's approval under a 1986 agreement.

Some tribal members also oppose the proposal, citing environmental concerns and a lack of information about it. But tribal leaders say the terminal will bring jobs and revenue to the reservation.
