A bill to stem development on the Mount Sunapee ski resort was killed yesterday with much assistance from Rep Fred King- R-Colebrook. This bill, HB419, was intended to slow contractors for the current lease holders of the resort to stop construction on, reportedly, several hundred new condos. The House action killed the chances for the House to get involved with responsible environmental development with the excuse given in part by King that, "...the lease contract is an agreement with the Sunapee lease holders and the State. This is an issue for the Executive Council and the Governor to review". Gotcha Freddie. Come to think of it this might be a blessing in disguise. I would rather have Ray Burton and his group, under the close watch of the Guvnah, reviewing this type of environmental impact lease. Although the economic development arguement will surely be brought up as construction being good for the State. Better heads usually prevail in that Executive Council and the money is a bit more publicized. Ruth Griffin sits on the Council with Burton and she is taking heat for similar improprieties as Chandler, albeit not as toasty a fire. Perhaps the next ethics review will be at several hens in the barn not just the old goats. Heh-heh-heh.
