Former Maine Gov. John Baldacci asked the Planning Board in Searsport, Maine, to put a high priority on public safety in deliberating the fate of DCP Midstream's proposed multimillion-dollar propane storage tank. Baldacci said present market conditions are different from the critical circumstances that led him to contact DCP six years ago to ramp up propane supplies in the state. Opponents hope that Baldacci will be able to influence town officials as they decide whether to approve the project.
