The Fight Over A Maine Power Transmission Line Could Hit The Ballots03:40


There are plans for a power transmission line to connect hydroelectric plants in Canada with Massachusetts to bring clean energy to the state.

Maine Public Radio's Fred Bever joined WBUR's Morning Edition host Bob Oakes to report.
