LePage looks to merge state’s Conservation, Agriculture departments
Bangor Daily News - 9/30/2011.
By Christopher Cousins – Augusta: Gov. Paul LePage announced Thursday that he wants to merge the Departments of Conservation and Agriculture in an effort to better serve the farming, conservation and forestry sectors and enrich the economy.

Kennebec Journal - 9/30/2011.
By Rebekah Metzler – Augusta: Gov. Paul LePage aims to merge the Departments of Agriculture and Conservation, but his goal is a more "robust natural resource economy," not a budget savings. "The key fact is that we're not out to destroy anything, it's just the other way around. If it was a part of a budget-reduction discussion, then I would be firmly planted on the other side," said Walter Whitcomb, commissioner of the Department of Agriculture, in an interview.

But there is concern that it could shift priorities.
