The News lamented that after "all these years of being friendly to New Yorkers who come here for vacation and in exchange Maine is sent a lot of gaseous air laden with pollution. Not neighborly; not at all."

The Courant called for Connecticut Governor Rowland "to urge his Republican colleague, New York Gov. George Pataki, to reject the current proposal."

Previous editorials opposing the SLC proposal have been published in The Independent (Hillsdale, NY), The Berkshire Eagle (Pittsfield, MA), The New Haven Register (CT), The Poughkeepsie Journal (NY), The New York Times (twice), and The Boston Globe, among others.
