Ask Your Legislator to Pass LD 820 Majority Report. Protect Maine from Mining Pollution
The Environment and Natural Resources Committee of the Legislature voted 12-1 in favor of LD 820, "An Act to Protect Maine's Clean Water and Taxpayers from Mining Pollution" as amended. This is good news! Now please ask your legislators to pass this strong bill in the House and Senate with overwhelming majorities so that this bill becomes law and protects Maine from mining pollution.
Urge Your Legislators to Support a Strong Solar Policy for Maine
The Maine PUC voted to roll back Maine’s solar policy: net metering. Net metering has made it possible for thousands of Maine homes and businesses to own and produce their own solar power, but the PUC voted to take Maine backward. It’s more important than ever that the Legislature stops the PUC from gutting solar in Maine.
Don't Cut the EPA!
The Trump Administration has proposed massive cuts to the US EPA, including cutting EPA’s budget by 31% and its personnel by 3,200 staffers. These irresponsible cuts would have devastating impacts on environmental protection nationwide, including here in Maine. Sign our petition to protect EPA's important programs that keep Maine’s air and water clean.
Tell President Trump to Stop Rollbacks on Climate Protection
President Trump issued an Executive Order to roll back America’s climate protections, including the landmark Clean Power Plan. NRCM and our partners around the state and country will use every tool we have to fight back, including legal action and people power. The stakes are too high and climate action is imperative.
