Hello WTP Maine volunteers and others.

The hearing for HP 956 is now scheduled for Wednesday May 27, 1 PM Cross Building, Room 214. HP 956 is one of 5 items on the schedule, 3 LD’s to change the Maine constitution, and 2 HP’s to have Maine Legislature call for a U.S. constitutional convention, one concerning fiscal restraint and the WTP Maine HP, making the simple fact that “corporations are not people” and “money is not speech” a formal, enforceable part of the U.S. constitution.

There will also be a Flash Rally and Press Conference before the hearing at noon.
