At a press conference held yesterday, CLF and our colleagues at the Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) shined a spotlight on 50 bad bills that are now working their way through the state Legislature. If passed, these bills could:
- Open up the three million acres of the North Woods to development
- Repeal the ban on BPA and flame retardant chemicals that are hazardous to our health
- Allow big polluters to not be held accountable for cleaning up their own mess
The assault on Maine’s environmental protections continues, and we will continue to fight back—but we need your help. If you haven’t already, please add your voice to the effort by contacting your local legislator, submitting a letter to the editor to your local paper, or by becoming a member of CLF.
