KEEP MAINE COMPETITIVE


Led by the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, the Keep Maine Competitive coalition is a group of business and trade associations working to strengthen Maine’s economy.

The Coalition’s primary focus this legislative session is the repeal of the 3% income tax surcharge imposed by last fall's referendum question. Through this citizen's initiative process funded by out-of-state dollars, the voters told the Maine Legislature that they wanted more money for education. While the coalition and Maine’s business community agree that more funding is needed for education, a significant tax increase is the wrong solution and will have a devastating effect on Maine's economy.
