legislative ADVOCACY

Stay informed and stay involved!

On June 26 and 27, several MLP members met with key legislators at the State House to express their support of S1116, a bill that will limit the liability of snow and ice contractors. The hearing for this important piece of legislation was held Tuesday July 9th at 1:00 at the State House

UPDATE 10/28/19: To keep this valuable piece of legislation moving forward, we need members to call, email or send a letter to the Chair of the Ways & Means Committee in support of the proposed legislation as soon as possible.  Visit the Legislative Advocacy page to learn more.
