Racial impact will now be considered in our legislative process.
Yesterday we announced that we would hold an endorsement vote for L.D. 2 “An Act To Require the Inclusion of Racial Impact Statements in the Legislative Process” at our meeting next Thursday. But yesterday the bill passed in both the Maine House and Senate! (Read about it here) We are removing the vote from our agenda, and send our congratulations to Portland Representative Rachel Talbot Ross, who sponsored the effort.
You can watch our February 18 conversation with Rep. Talbot Ross here.
