On Wednesday, June 30 CMP Corridor referendum advocates will meet outside between the State House and Cross Office Building at 9 am for a 9:30 press conference followed by a day in the halls of the State House on the third floor outside of the Maine Senate advocating for the veto override of LD 194, "An Act to Prohibit Contributions, Expenditures, and Participation by Foreign Government-owned Entities to Influence Referenda."
Homemade signs are encouraged for this event, but sign stakes/poles are not permitted.
LD 194 is necessary to close the loophole that is currently allowing a foreign government to use a company owned by its taxpayers to flood Maine with ads to influence the outcome of an election initiated by the people of Maine. Now that this loophole has been exposed, and Hydro-Quebec has gotten away with its spending spree, the floodgates are open for foreign government involvement in future referendums as well. Regardless of how you feel about the CMP Corridor, LD 194 closes a dangerous loophole; simply put, it’s the right thing to do.
