Maine Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility endorse my bill banning Coal Tar Pavement Products

I am proud to be the sponsor of LD 1212 “An Act To Prohibit Coal Tar Pavement Products.” Please check out this wonderful article from Coal Tar Free America about the Maine Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility’s endorsement of the bill:

The bill will have its public hearing on Monday, May 6 at 9 AM in the Cross Building in Augusta (Room 216). I would love to have some local support. Let me know if you have any questions about the bill or if you would be interested in testifying in favor of the bill.

If you plan to speak at a public hearing, it is often useful to prepare and distribute your comments in written form. In preparing testimony, written or not, make sure you introduce yourself and, if you represent an organization, give the name of the organization. State whether you support the bill, oppose it or are offering suggestions to improve it, and then explain your reasoning. If you do provide written testimony, bring at least 25 copies and give them to the committee clerk before you testify. Photocopiers are available in the Law and Legislative Reference Library in Room 200 of the State House for a nominal charge.
