The new governor of Maine is being decided on, and the decision that this new governor makes about the state’s natural resources is a large one.

The next governor is going to have to take money out of the natural resources, while also being able to cover the costs of the habitat at the same time. Both democrats and republicans got a chance to tell their side, and what they can provide to the natural resources department.

So what is going to happen with the future of the North Woods?

All of the candidates running for governor are opposed to making the North Woods a National Park. The Republicans are with the Land Use Regulation Commission, and want to go with the changes that they want to make such as getting rid of LURC.

Democrats want to keep LURC around. They do not want to push towards any conservation that is going to decrease the value of the industries or land that depend mostly on the forest. Although, some say there are things going on within these woods that are not going to be good for Maine. Of course, these things were not disclosed.

A lot of the democrats are concerned about other issues, and much less about the forests. This is because there are a lot of other things in Maine that are going to need change. The forest is providing a food source, as well as oxygen to the State, why would they tear it down?

Republicans want to stop the public from taking over private land. There are parts of the forest that should be preserved, but they do not feel that it all should be. They want to focus more on forest management that provides economic return in the long run. The prime property in the area should be developed and turned into something that they can actually use, rather than just having forests.

Sunday hunting is also being looked into. A lot of people want to tear it down since it is a day for rest, and to spend with the family, while others enjoy this time to go out and hunt for their family.

There is a lot of debate on whether or not hunting should be banned on this day, or if they should continue on with what has worked in the past.

Of course, this is going to be one heated debate.
