BANGOR, Maine (AP)- A union that represents Emera Maine Workers is expressing concerns about the company's buyer at a time when a state law raises the bar for the sale of public utilities. The new law was signed by Governor Janet Mills and requires that the deal provide a net benefit for Maine ratepayers where as the old law required only a deal that did not harm ratepayers.
