The time for action has come. The Maine Small Business Investment Protection Act (LD1458) is scheduled to be voted on by the Maine House of Representatives this morning!
We support the Minority Report, Senator Patrick’s amendment to LD1458 to strengthen franchising, not harm or limit it. We all make our living in franchising; damaging it would diminish the value of our investments. However, we see an industry that has tilted out of balance.
It is important that you call and leave a message to your Representative Today!
Call 857-264-3998, get the representative name and phone number for where you live and where you own and operate shops. Then call that Representative and leave a message that you support LD 1458.
We feel strongly we can get something done here. We can’t do it without your support!
You need to step up and tell the legislators of Maine that this bill is seeking to protect and defend the investment and equity you have developed in Maine.
Please don’t hesitate to call me if you have any comments, questions and suggestions, or if you request any special considerations. I am here to help you get the message you want to get out to the legislators that are considering protective measures to defend your hard earned equity.
