Business Day at the Legislature
Hall of Flags, Second Floor, Statehouse, Augusta, ME
May 11, 2017
8:00 am to 12:00 pm


About the Event

We host this event to emphasize the importance of preserving and retaining our existing jobs, strengthening our economy through the creation of new opportunities, and keeping Maine businesses competitive. Business Day is a perfect opportunity for you to connect with your legislators and talk about the issues important to your business and region.

Given all of the business issues before the Maine Legislature, we are anticipating another great turnout from the state's business community. We believe it is very important to have as many people on-hand as possible! Please encourage your employees and colleagues to attend as well.

The key issue that we will be focusing on at this event is the 3% income tax surcharge imposed by referendum question 2 last fall. While we support more funding for education, the 3% tax is the wrong solution because of the impact it will have on Maine's economy, we believe there is a better way. The Maine State Chamber is part of the Keep Maine Competitive Coalition, a group of business & trade associations currently working to accomplish the above stated goal.
