“Right to Food” Amendment Is Wrong for Maine

So Many Reasons to Vote NO on Question 3:

A Solution in Search of a Problem

Constitutional Amendment Trumps Other State and Local Laws

A Potential Cascade of Unintended Legal Consequences

Farm Animal Welfare Laws Threatened

Local zoning rules gutted

Puts a Handful of Judges in Charge of Maine Food Policy

Organizations Across the Political Spectrum Urge No on Question 3

Portland Press Herald Says “NO on 3”:

“It’s hard to see how Question 3 in any way will address hunger, which is a result of poverty much more than an inadequate food system. A ‘right to food’ won’t guarantee meals on the table or a supermarket in your community. Growing their own nourishment is not an option for most people.”
