This link will take you to the list of bills as they are published. http://www.mainelegislature.org/legis/bills/bills_125th/billtexts/

I will be organizing the UPDATES to the list by “First Entry + LD#”, “Second Entry + LD#” etc… For your own convenience just keep track of the LD# of the bill you left off at last. At first browse I found a few that I think I am favorable to, myself. And some I am absolutely in opposition to. Its never boring either way. (Does anyone else pray for boredom?)

This e-mail contains the Third Entry as is organized below and by Committee. For your own convenience just keep track of the LD# of the bill you left off at last.
The first link will take you to where you can locate the committee schedules for this upcoming week. Some folks have chosen particular committees to watch, while others are eyeballing particular bills. However it works, the increased attention to what Augusta is doing is exceptionally heartening. There are proposed laws that will need The People for support as well as those to oppose and knowing what’s going on and that so many folks are on it is just wonderful!If you have asked to be removed from this “update list” and are receiving this e-mail please forgive me. I have somehow misplaced that list and am doing by memory at the moment. If any of you receiving these updates would prefer to be removed from this distribution list, please let me know. Thanks.Enjoy! In Liberty,
Cynthia

About Me
I am committed to insuring the freedoms of our great nation. I want smaller government, stop wasteful spending, personal responsibility back, energy independence and to follow our Constitution
I am a big fan of personal responsibility, educating yourself, working hard and getting back up. I also believe that this Great Nation of ours DOES NOT owe me a living.I am also keen on people not playing the victim, not feeling a sense of entitlement, and not fearing competition. And when you are struggling in a tough economy, you don’t lay blame and give up or ask for (no let me rephrase that) expect a government bail out. YOU WORK HARDER!!!! As far as the energy problem goes DRILL BABY DRILL!!!!!!! Windmills and solar power are not going to put gas in our cars,trucks,planes, trains and boats. Yes we absolutely we need to seek alternate fuels and should go balls to the wall to develop them, but we must have oil now and in the future. The government needs to get out of the way and we need the environmental, wacko nut bags to shut up!!
It is my intention to have people think. I am hoping that we can engage in meaningful discussion and maybe learn from each other. We all have to open our minds and look for the TRUTH, stop this crap “I am right and any other way is wrong. Has anyone ever heard the saying Agree to Disagree???I personally believe that this Great Nation of OURS is in grave danger. If WE THE PEOPLE don’t wake up and demand from our politicians (Democrats and Republicans) to stop these games we are all going to lose our Country. Both parties are trying to divide us and it is working!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!If anyone is interested in meaningful dialogue about the state of our nation, I will be happy to try and search for the truth with you. If you are interested in name-calling and insults, DON”T BOTHER and if you do not care about our children and Grandchildren’s Freedom and future then you can just continue living in your own world. (Maybe things will work out)

Live in the American spirit in which you want this country to remain. Honest, responsible, understanding, holding true to the Founding Fathers and the documents they created for US. Be pro-active, not re-active.
I seek the truth and real solutions. I hope to here from you.

My main concerns for the state of Maine are:
Lower Taxes, less government control, responsible spending, Major wellfare reform. I am sick of all the freeloaders, Maine has vast resources and with alittle imagination and hard work you can always find a way to make money
What ways can you help Maine Refounders / Tea Party
preserve the Constitution
