Interesting poll conducted in Maine that reflects on two recent bills we and many supported:

WABI TV Poll. The past 9 polls were posted and most had a 2,000ish responses, one had under 2,000 responses:
“Should transgender females be allowed to compete in female school athletic programs?”
We had 4,179 votes. 12% said yes, 88% said no.

Let the Maine Judiciary Committee know what Mainer's believe...
LD An Act To Ban Biological Males from Participating in Women's Sports
LD An Act To Prohibit Biological Males from Participating in School Athletic Programs and Activities Designated for Females at Schools That Receive Federal Funding
