Passamaquoddy Tribe agrees to new gas terminal site

Leaders of the Passamaquoddy Tribe of Maine voted 4-3 to host a liquefied natural gas facility at a site considered to be sacred.

The council narrowly accepted the proposal for the terminal at Split Rock after the original location was rejected by voters of a nearby town. Supporters said it will brings and revenue to the Pleasant Point Reservation.

But some tribal members promised to challenge the new site. They said the council is only concerned about money.
