    Default Maine vaccine bill passed by lawmakers likely headed for statewide vote

    Opponents of the new requirement for school-age immunizations submit more than enough valid signatures to challenge the law on the March ballot.

    An anti-vaccine group says it submitted more than 77,000 valid petition signatures to the Secretary of State’s Office on Wednesday, surpassing the threshold needed to place a “people’s veto” of a new vaccine law on the March ballot.
    The Secretary of State’s Office will review the petitions over the next 30 days to verify that Mainers for Health and Parental Rights, which circulated the people’s veto petitions, has the signatures of at least 63,054 registered voters, the number needed to get on the ballot.

    Despite the conservative color of our second district, Maine is overall a very progressive state. We are one of the 13 states that adopted fuel-efficient standards that the current administration is attempting to roll back. Remember, "as Maine goes, so goes the nation."
