American Chemistry Council

Real Backers of LePage's Anti-Environment Agenda

Some great reporting from Susan Sharon at MPBN yesterday caught the LePage administration making another false statement. Spokesman Dan Demeritt claimed that opposition to the Kid-Safe Products Act came from the Maine Grocers Association, when in fact the organization has no position on the law.

As the piece explains, and I've also mentioned, the real force behind the attacks on Maine's environmental and public health protections is coming from out-of-state interests like the American Chemistry Council, which represents large chemical and plastic manufacturing companies.
