William Chisholm letter to Sen. Muskie, 1971

Contributed by Edmund S. Muskie Archives and Special Collections Library

William H. Chisholm, vice chairman of the board of the Kennebec River Pulp & Paper Co. in Madison, wrote to Maine Sen. Edmund S. Muskie about his concerns about the so-called "Muskie Bill."

Chisholm called the "no pollutant discharge" provision an "economic disaster for the country."

He expressed hope that a conference committee would "take a more realistic view" and amend the proposed legislation and expressed surprise that Muskie would support "such an unreasonable goal."
