To We The People Maine, supporters:
There is a bill in the Maine legislature which could obstruct or at least slow down the flow of corporate money to candidates and campaigns. We are sending this to you as you may be interested and available to testify at a legislative committee on your feelings about corporate money in politics. This bill is separate from the We The People Maine resolution which has not yet been assigned to a committee.
The public hearing for LD 53, “An Act To Require Shareholder Consent for Corporate Political Contributions,” will be at the Veterans and Legal Affairs Committee meeting in Augusta on Wednesday, February 4, at 10:00 am. Testimony is limited to 3 minutes. Please contact the bill's sponsor, Rep. Deane Rykerson (D-Kittery), if you would like to submit testimony (firstname.lastname@example.org, 207-439-8755). Read LD 53.
