House Passes Poliquin’s Acadia National Park Boundary Clarification Act

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 13, 2018 -

Today, the House passed H.R. 4266, the “Acadia National Park Boundary Clarification Act.” Introduced by Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R-ME), the bipartisan bill addresses long-standing land and resource management conflicts associated with Acadia National Park in Maine.  

“Hardworking Maine families have made their living for generations by clamming and worming in the intertidal zone in and around Acadia. It’s critical their right to use the flats is protected. I’m pleased to have worked closely with the entire Maine Delegation and to hear from all stakeholders to put together this comprehensive solution to resolving boundary and traditional harvesting matters at Acadia. For many months, I’ve made sure to hear from and meet with groups on all sides and of all different interests in these discussions—from holding a roundtable discussion with local wormers and clammers last summer in Ellsworth to meeting or talking directly with Acadia National Park officials and local town officials. I’m very pleased a bipartisan group in the House has moved this bill forward today,” Rep. Poliquin stated.
