MADISON, ME, Aug. 24, 2015 (Local News) -A federal ruling allowing the U.S. government to put duties on paper being imported from Nova Scotia last month was good news for UPM Madison.

Given recent layoffs, mill closings and drops in tax revenue, it's some of the only good news the paper industry has had lately in Maine.

With the preliminary ruling issued July 27 in place, the U.S. Department of Commerce has started charging duties on paper from Nova Scotia's Port Hawkesbury Paper, and mill officials in Madison hope the ruling will be upheld when a final decision is made in November.
