It’s a shame we won’t be able to vote to protect our right to food

On March 28, the Maine Senate leadership killed LD 783, a proposal to send a food freedom constitutional amendment to the November ballot. It was scuttled “under the hammer” following a very quietly raised motion and a swift gavel. The parliamentary ploy effectively short-circuited a carefully prepared intent to reconsider and allow a substantive discussion of the bill on the Senate floor.
