We’re the statewide organization representing the interests and concerns of Maine’s grocery and food producer industry.
The pace has quickened! We’ve reviewed 597 proposed pieces of legislation for you and posted the Bills of Interest. This list is growing each week, but we’re focused and strategic.
We testified this week in favor of Senator Amy Volk’s proposal LD 310 that would incorporate language in Maine’s criminal code to address the growing organized retail theft rings costing Maine retailers as estimated $150 million each year. Not only are retailers losing out but also a reported $7 million in lost sales tax. Thank you Senator Volk for your leadership. Read our testimony here.Read More
