We’re the statewide organization representing the interests and concerns of Maine’s grocery and food producer industry.


With no deal on a state budget, some are wondering if tax reform and relief is only a pipe dream.  We understand that the Appropriations Committee is considering some elements of the Governor’s proposal as well as the Republican and Democrat’s proposals, but no details are surfacing.  Next week the AFA Committee will hold hearings on several bond proposals which will divert them from their budget deliberations.

All Committee work is suppose to be wrapped up by tomorrow, Friday, May 29 which sets the stage for back to back legislative sessions.  We have several bills that we’re following including LD 92 that would raise the minimum wage.

Stay tuned for more information and be sure to visit the Legislative Watch for detailed information about Bills of Interest.
