ME State Chamber of Commerce: Legislative Week Ahead 5/22-5/26, 2017

Don’t miss The Legislative Week Ahead this week!

Legislature is entering into the next phase of their work as committee work wraps up. Legislative session moves from three days a week to five days a week starting next week. Much of their time will be spent dealing with the many divided reports. The real big issue is the state’s biennial budget as Appropriations continues its work, and the outcome of the 3% surtax and education funding.

The Energy, Utilities and Technology committee will hear LD 1610, An Act To Protect Privacy of Online Customer Personal Information, this week. In response to federal action, this bill deals with internet privacy and advertising and the definition of privacy.

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.
