The Maine Sunday Telegram has a long article about the prospect of taxing Poland Spring (and others?) $1 per gallon pumped out of the Maine ground. It's ridiculous! By the same reasoning, every farmer should be charged $1 per gallon of milk he produces, all the berry growers and orchardists should be charged $1 per gallon of recoverable "juice" since that ultimately came from the ground!
Poland Spring simply said they'd go someplace else.. with their 300 Maine jobs.
