With the legislative session underway, the Maine Heritage Policy Center has been working on several key pieces of legislation. One bill would allow school districts the choice to repeal Common Core State Standards. The other—a Right-to-Shop bill—injects much-needed transparency into the health care market by creating an incentive for Mainers to shop for health care services based on price and quality. MHPC is already laying the groundwork for success in 2017 with its upcoming publication, The Red Tape Guidebook. Within this guide, they will outline laws and regulations that are most inhibitive to economic growth and provide suggestions for future legislation. They are also preparing to release a publication outlining the 2015 referendum vote to grant additional funds to the Maine Clean Election Act. In January, MHPC added communications director Krysta Lilly to its team. mainepolicy.org
