November 16, 2012: Governor Paul LePage (R) has rejected federal funding to provide health coverage for the uninsured. Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate are expected to push for accepting this money.
Ways to Get Involved:
- To help lobby Gov. LePage and Maine legislators please email Sr. Mary Ellen at firstname.lastname@example.org 
- Since Gov. LePage is a Catholic, we would love to organize a “sign-on” letter to him from Catholic sisters ministering to the people in Maine. If this sounds like something you or your congregation would be interested in, please contact Sr. Mary Ellen Lacy at email@example.com 
- One page fact-sheet on eligibility, enrollment, and cost http://www.cbpp.org/files/healthtoolkit2012/Maine.pdf 
- Governor Says "No," but Legislature Not Convinced
