SACO – Two members of Saco’s legislative delegation are introducing an emergency measure to demand the Federal Government take action on the erosion issues in Camp Ellis.
Sen. Justin Chenette and Rep. Donna Bailey, who both represent Camp Ellis in the legislature, are requesting funding from Congress so the Army Corps of Engineers can immediately begin their work.
“Inaction is not an acceptable solution,” says Sen. Chenette. “People are losing their homes, their livelihoods and their way of life all because of a man-made, self-created issue that the Federal Government is directly responsible for.”
AUGUSTA--The Maine Senate voted overwhelmingly to override Gov. LePage’s veto of legislation from Sen. Justin Chenette, D-Saco, to extend insurance coverage requirements to include naturopathic care for appropriate services. The vote was was 32-2.
LD 1030, “An Act to Require Nondiscrimination Policies in Providing Health Care Services” as amended would prevent insurance companies from discriminating against care received from a naturopathic doctor practicing within the scope of their license.
“After working on this issue for the better part of a year, I am glad the Legislature could finally come together and enact this legislation in such a bipartisan way over the objection of the Governor,” said Sen. Chenette. “Now Mainers will have more options when it comes to their health.”
