Thanks to your advocacy and support, efforts to
support the Land for Maine's Future Program have
persevered despite lots of pushback from Governor LePage. As you know, Governor
LePage has decided to politicize this widely supported program by withholding
LMF bond funding – funds that you and I voted to allocate in the 2010 and 2012
general elections. He is using LMF as a bargaining chip by connecting this
program to unrelated issues and initiatives.
AMC supports LD
1378, the bi-partisan effort to limit the Governor’s ability to withhold
voter-approved bond money. LD 1378 was supported in both the House and the
Senate by solid majorities and was passed on June 18th. Now, we need your help
for the final push to override the almost certain veto from Governor LePage.
Find out how your legislators voted and encourage them to hold strong against
political pressure and support the bill by overriding the Governor’s veto on LD
