The Legislature passed LD1708 in a historic bipartisan vote on June 30, approving the popular proposal to let Maine voters decide in November whether to replace CMP and Versant with a local consumer-owned utility. Governor Mills vetoed the bill on July 13.

While the Governor’s veto is disappointing, it’s also a call to action. We can still take this proposal–supported by 75% of Maine voters–directly to the voters in November 2022 as a Citizen Initiative. And that’s exactly what we intend to do.
