Paul LePage vs. MPBN

To be delivered to The Maine State House, The Maine State Senate, and Governor Paul LePage

Petition Statement

We, the undersigned, urge the Maine Legislature's Appropriations & Financial Affairs Committee to fully restore state funding for Maine Public Broadcasting to keep our communities connected and informed.
There are currently 17,466 signatures. NEW goal - We need 20,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Governor LePage wants to cut all state support for MPBN - 20% of their overall budget. This relatively small amount of money enables Mainers in the farthest reaches of the state to get their news and entertainment through radio and TV.
