Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 New England’s governors and the premiers of Canada’s eastern provinces have been meeting in Maine. They adopted a resolution today calling for transportation systems that avoid greenhouse gas emissions.

The resolution at the 32nd meeting of the state and provincial leaders calls for better coordination between environmental and transportation agencies and transportation systems.

The leaders also agreed on a resolution that acknowledges the importance of maintaining an adequate labor force in the region. Governor Jim Douglas says employers tell him that’s the most critical problem facing them.

The conference is being hosted by Governor John Baldacci of Maine and Premier Shawn Graham of New Brunswick.
