Love Rally & Organic Food

This afternoon there is a public hearing in South Portland, 3 - 6, on LD1, the Governor's 63-point proposal for scaling back environmental regulation in Maine. 

Another hearing has been set for Monday, and since it is Valentine's day and all, some political mamas (and others) are sponsoring a LOVE RALLY.   What do you love about Maine?  What do your kids love? Make LOVE NOTES for the Governor or your representative... more info from MOFGA:

"Love ME" Rally At The State House! Please come to a rally in Augusta on Valentine's Day to oppose Governor LePage's anti-environment agenda. LePage has released a set of proposed regulatory roll-backs (LD 1) that would eliminate or dramatically weaken a broad range of laws meant to protect the Maine environment and the health of Maine people. The Legislature's new Regulatory Fairness and Reform Committee will hold a final public hearing on LePage's LD 1 Concept Draft on Monday, February 14th, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in Room 208 of the Cross State Office Building next to the Capitol in Augusta. Please join MOFGA and dozens of other environmental and public health organizations as we tell the Committee that Maine's economy can only be as healthy as its environment and its people. See Phase I of Governor LePage's Regulatory Reform Proposal.
And, in other disheartening news, Whole Foods and Stonyfield (and others) have apparently decided to stop fighting Monstano... another good reason to support our CSAs, I guess.
