Maine Gov. Paul LePage has vetoed a bill that would have required large firms to report bisphenol-A (BPA) use.
The legislation would have mandated companies pulling in annual sales of $1 billion or more to check in with the state if they used BPA in food packaging or other products.
In his veto comment, LePage claimed the bill put a burden on the state without delivering the funding necessary to get the job done.
Some Maine parents aren’t happy with the move. A group of parents descended upon the Capitol Monday to urge the governor to sign the bill, but came up emptyhanded.
