LDs 1129 & 1185, Kid-Safe Products Act, Mar 29
Action Alert - Monday, March 28, 2011 

LD 1129 would gut Maine's Kid-Safe Products Act, which the Legislature passed nearly unanimously in 2008. It would stop protections from toxic chemicals in many products that kids are exposed to, would ignore the best available science by favoring industry studies over independent peer-reviewed research, and would reject evidence of harm from animal tests and wildlife studies. In contrast, LD 1185 is supported by environmental groups. A hearing is scheduled at the Environment and Natural Resources Committee, Cross State Office Building, Augusta, Room 216, March 29, 1:30 pm.

Maine State House Watch: LePage says Freedom of Access Act a form of 'internal terrorism'
Action Alert - Sunday, March 27, 2011 

On March 14, leaders of Maine's three branches of government and their aides met. Gov. Paul LePage spoke about a range of priorities before turning to Maine's Freedom of Access Act (FOAA). Rather than use this opportunity to invoke the importance of government transparency, LePage blasted Maine's access law. He complained that his office has received too many requests, responding has become too time-consuming and that new limits on the public's right to know are needed. Then, LePage took things further, saying "FOAA is being used as a form of internal terrorism." You read that correctly. He compared the pursuit of public documents to violent acts. Even for a governor known for off-color statements, that's beyond the pale. ~ Mike Tipping
