MMA Legislative Committee's Organizational Meeting Scheduled for December 6

 The organizational meeting of the MMA Legislative Committee for the 129th Maine Legislature will take place on Thursday, December 6, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to approximately 8:30 p.m. (dinner available at 5:30 p.m.) at the Frank O. Stred Building, 30 Association Drive in Manchester.  Because the Committee will be discussing the MMA’s legislative agenda for the next two years, medical specialty societies are strongly encouraged to have one or more representatives at the meeting.  Any interested member also is welcome.  Please RSVP to Sarah Lepoff at slepoff@mainemed.com or 622-3374, ext. 213.

The leadership of the Maine Legislature has set December 21, 2018 for cloture, the date by which new bills to be considered in the 129th Legislature must have sponsors and titles submitted.

While the date is not certain, since the newly elected leadership of the next (129th) Legislature can change it, this action makes it highly likely that cloture will not occur before that date. Any party or organization that wishes to have a bill considered in the 129th Legislature must have located a Senate or House sponsor and have at least a title for the bill, if not the whole language, in time for the bill to be submitted before cloture.
