On April 14 the Maine Legislature passed the solar bill, and awaits the governor’s certain veto. An override vote is scheduled for April 29. Thankfully, Sen. Amy Volk has thus far voted for the bill, but in the House (which voted 91-56 for the bill) Reps. Heather Sirocki and Karen Vachon were among the no votes and have declared their opposition to override. The bill now needs about six more votes for override.
Our state, nation and world desparately need more renewable energy now. “Conservatives” have stalled and blocked clean energy progress for decades. Please, Rep. Sirocki and Rep. Vachon, do the right thing for our future. No petty excuses, vote to override. Grow solar in Maine.
