Even though both the Maine Senate and House initially passed this year’s modest solar bill, LD 1444, with a greater than two-thirds super majority, several legislators then bowed to political arm-twisting and cajoling by Gov. LePage and lobbying from CMP. They failed to uphold their previous support and promises to their constituents for purely political reasons, so the bill failed to pass. Whether your legislator was consistently supportive, unsupportive, or flip-flopped their votes, please let them know what you think of their vote on this bill!

Remove Pruitt from EPA
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has proven himself unfit to lead the federal agency that protects our public health, environment, and economy. During his past year in office, Pruitt has worked to silence scientists and derail dozens of environmental safeguards that protect our clean air, clean water, public lands, and climate. We need to remove him from EPA and replace him with someone who will stand up for the American people rather than protecting polluters.
Tell EPA You Support the Clean Power Plan
The Trump Administration is proposing to repeal the Clean Power Plan—the nation’s first and only federal limits on carbon pollution from power plants—before it has even take effect! The Plan limits dirty power plant pollution that contaminates our air, warms the cool ocean waters necessary for a healthy ecosystem, and intensifies and increases the frequency of dangerous storms. Tell EPA not to roll back the Clean Power Plan!
