The state official in charge of Central Maine Power’s corridor land lease was grilled by lawmakers on Thursday. The testimony of Andy Cutko, director of the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands, came a day after a judge ruled the state must review its lease of a 33-acre parcel to be used for the $1 billion corridor. At a public hearing on a bill that would tighten restrictions on leases, lawmakers on the conservation panel pressed Cutko on the process that led to the leases. At one point, Rep. Joseph Underwood, R-Presque Isle, asked Cutko to identify the state officials involved in recent decisions on the lease signed in 2014 and revised last year. Cutko said he would not because it was not “germane to the litigation or the legislation.”
