Stop $60 million subsidy to General Dynamics from Maine treasury



The latest edition of This Issue features Orlando Delogu, emeritus Professor of Law at the University of Southern Maine Law School. Orlando discusses the outrageous request by General Dynamics/BIW for a $60 million tax subsidy for their operations in Bath. Orlando sued General Dynamics in 1997 when they asked, and received, a similar subsidy from the state of Maine in the amount of $197 million. Orlando writes a regular column in The Forecaster weekly newspaper that is available throughout much of the state. He urges all Maine citizens to contact their state legislators immediately to share your feelings about this proposed tax subsidy.
