Please Contact Your Legislators NOW and Urge Them to Support New Bond Funding for Land for Maine’s Future (LD 1248) and Stream Crossings (LD 1069)

 

The Appropriations Committee voted yesterday on bonds. The good news is that a majority of the committee voted in favor of both the Land for Maine’s (LMF) Bond (LD 1248) and the Stream Crossings Bond (LD 1069). Unfortunately, we do not have the two thirds support that we need to pass the bonds.

Please contact your legislators now before it’s too late and urge them to support both the LMF and Stream Crossings Bonds. 

The LMF Bond has been amended to propose $5 million of new bond funding for the state’s land conservation program.

The Stream Crossings Bond has been amended to propose $5 million of new bond funding to help municipalities upgrade their culverts.

These are modest investments that will benefit our environment and our economy.
