MOFGA monitors bills and related public hearings at the Legislature, and follows discussions and rulemaking developments at the Board of Pesticides Control. We post position statements and action alerts accordingly.

What you can do about bills in the Legislature:

Attend a public hearing and testify as an individual.

If your senator or representative serves on the committee hearing the bill, contact her or him directly.

Contact each committee member directly.

If the bill goes to the floor of the House or Senate for a vote, contact your legislators.

To find contact information for your legislators, and to track a particular bill, go to www.maine.gov/legis/. Type in the bill LD# in the upper right of the screen. Click on "committee info" to find out the bill’s status.

If you have questions or comments, please contact Jo Ann Myers, MOFGA Public Policy Chair at yupik@midcoast.com.
