Policy Advocacy

policy advocacyFor more than 50 years, the Manufacturers Association of Maine (MAME) has been the leading voice and advocate for the state’s advanced manufacturing sector.

  • With over 1,850 businesses, with over 56,700 skilled and talented professionals, manufacturing fuels Maine’s economy.

Legislative Advocacy MAME is the only voice in Augusta dedicated to supporting manufacturing and addressing their issues. Our focus is 100% on advocating for Pro-Growth, Pro-Manufacturing Legislation. Our work includes:

  • Data collection from State and Federal resources focused on Maine’s competitiveness compared to other New England states, and manufacturers across the country
  • Legislative advocacy before state and federal lawmakers, regulatory agencies, and the office of the governor to provide them with data of the economic impact from manufacturing, why this sector is so critical to Maine’s economic recovery and long-term prosperity, and how proposed legislation affects this sector. 

Our four areas of advocacy focus are:

  • Workforce Development
  • Energy & Environment
  • Employment Law and Regulations
  • Taxation
