After months of campaigning, LD 809: An Act to Address Student Hunger with a Breakfast After the Bell Program, passed both the Senate and the House unanimously, adding Maine to the growing list of states that are ensuring kids have access to school breakfast. We just learned that last night Governor Paul LePage has issued a veto of this important bill. This is a blow to so many who have fought for this bill, but most importantly, Maine’s children.
Hungry kids can’t wait. We need to make sure the Maine legislature hears from you. Email your legislators TODAY and urge them to override the veto.
