Flag-of-Maine-300x282The Small Business Investment Protection Act, pending in the Maine Legislature since early in 2013, will be discussed in detail at an upcoming meeting of the Labor, Commerce, Research & Economic Development Committee on Thursday, January 16, 2014 at the State Capital in Augusta.  The bill, filed by Rep. Erin Herbig (D-Belfast), is identified as LD1458, and scheduled to be heard at 1:00 PM.   The meeting/hearing is essentially a discussion of the issue amongst committee members, moreso than a hearing for public participation, but we nonetheless encourage members to contact their Maine legislators and advise them of your support of this important legislation.   We will keep you advised of any new developments.
