Don’t miss The Legislative Week Ahead this week!

A new episode of our Legislative Week Ahead is now posted online at www.mainechamber.org/legweekahead.php.  This video snapshot of our most critical legislative issues provides our members with a weekly video forecast of the wide variety of issues facing lawmakers in Augusta during the upcoming week. Our Advocacy team breaks down the issues and what they mean to your business.

IMPORTANT HEARING ON MONDAY, MARCH 20 at 1:00 p.m. before the Taxation Committee! We’d like to bring to your attention a bill that will have a public hearing on Monday afternoon ~ one that funds education by imposing a 3% tax on incomes over $200,000 and has significant economic implications for our state. Please listen in to this special message from Dana Connors.

We’d like you to contact your legislators and share with them your personal economic outcomes from the passage of this tax. Find your legislator’s contact information here: http://bipac.net/lookup.asp?g=maine.
Simply type in your home address, and you will be provided with the names of your state representative and senator for that area. Once that page is open, you can click on their name and you will be provided with contact information.
