LD 36 An Act To Change the Composition of the Board of Pesticides Control Status: Referred to Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee, Amended by Committee amendment H-304, Enacted, Signed into law June 5, 2019
LD 36
This bill restores the requirement that the 2 public members of the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, Board of Pesticides Control have a demonstrated interest in environmental protection. The change does not require the termination of the terms of current members of the board.

Amendment H-304
This amendment, which is the majority report, strikes from the bill the requirement that the 2 public members of the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, Board of Pesticides Control have a demonstrated interest in environmental protection and strikes from the law the requirement that these members represent different areas of the State. Instead, the amendment requires that one of the 2 public members have practical experience and knowledge of methods of sustainable management of indoor and outdoor pests.

LD 351
This bill provides that:

  • 1. Poultry and poultry products sold or offered for sale may not be labeled with a certified "Maine" trademark or labeled or advertised as "Maine-raised" or by a similar designation unless the poultry was raised solely in the State from no later than the 7th day after hatching; and
  • 2. Meat and meat products sold or offered for sale may not be labeled with a certified "Maine" trademark or labeled or advertised as "Maine-raised" or by a similar designation unless the animal was born in the State and raised solely in the State.

The bill also requires the Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, under the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 22, chapter 562-A relating to preparation of livestock and poultry products for human consumption, to enforce the prohibition on labeling or advertising poultry, poultry products, meat and meat products sold or offered for sale as "Maine-raised" unless the requirements in this bill are met.

The Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry may grant a waiver of the determination that such poultry, poultry products, meat and meat products are misbranded upon consideration of economic factors, including, but not limited to, the proximity of processing facilities to the in-state poultry producer or meat producer and the availability of poultry processing facilities or meat processing facilities in the State.

Amendment S-17
This amendment strikes the provision in the bill that specifies that it is private or public property owned or operated by a swine producer that the Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry may enter to investigate conditions relating to treating or feeding of garbage to swine.

LD 540 An Act Regarding Qualifications for District Attorneys Status: Referred to Judiciary Committee, Amended by Committee amendment H-98, Enacted, Signed into law May 8, 2019
LD 540
Current law requires that only attorneys who are admitted to the practice of law in the State may be elected or appointed district attorney. This bill adds the requirement that an attorney may not have been suspended from the practice of law in the State or any other jurisdiction during the previous 10 years in order to be elected or appointed district attorney and specifies that disbarment or suspension from the practice of law vacates the office.

Amendment H-98
The bill provides for the disqualification of a person to be elected or appointed district attorney if the person has been suspended from the practice of law within the previous 10 years. It also provides that disbarment or suspension during the term of office results in the person vacating the office. This amendment retains these provisions.

This amendment requires a district attorney to be a "member in good standing of the bar of the State," which is consistent with the generally accepted standard of qualification of attorneys for positions. Language from the law governing qualifications for the Attorney General is added to the law governing qualifications for a district attorney to make these provisions consistent. Any suspension must have ended at least 10 years prior to the attorney's election or appointment as district attorney.
