Current Action Opportunities

Now is the time. Don’t let Gov. LePage’s veto be the last word on health care for nearly 70,000 Maine people!

    

Last month the Maine Legislature voted in support of LD 1487 – the compromise bill to allow Maine to accept federal funds to provide health care coverage to nearly 70,000 Maine people.

Governor LePage promised to veto this bill. Today he did.

Now the bill goes back to the Maine Senate and House where two-thirds of the Senators and Representatives present will be needed to override his veto. If an override is successful, LD 1487 will become law and Mainers, who otherwise can't afford it, will finally have health care coverage later this year!

Please call your Senator and Representative now - even if you have taken action on this issue before. You can leave a message 24 hours-a-day.

Senators:  1-800-423-6900     

Representatives: 1-800-423-2900 

When you call, say:

- Your name,

- Town that you live in,

- Your legislator's name, and

- A brief message. For example: "Please vote to override the Governor's veto of LD 1487.  We need to accept the federal funds that will provide health care. Maine people will be healthier and our economy will be stronger."

Urge your legislators to vote to override the Governor's veto. Urge them to vote so that more Maine people can have coverage who otherwise will not have access to health care. A vote to override the Governor's veto will bring hundreds of millions of dollars into Maine to stimulate our economy, and maintain and create jobs.
