LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King today announced that legislation to remove an antiquated deed restricting the use of land next to the Old Town Municipal Airport has passed the Senate with unanimous consent. The removal of the restriction will allow the city and the airport to work together to pursue economic development opportunities, attract new businesses, and help create jobs. The bill was introduced by Senator King and cosponsored by Senator Collins in March 2017.
“The City of Old Town has worked hard to redevelop this parcel of land to drive economic development and create jobs in the region,” said Senators Collins and King in a joint statement. “With the Senate passage of this common sense legislation, the federal government is taking an important step towards greater local control that will support Old Town and help grow Maine’s economy.”
