Maine Veterinary Medical Association Opposes Question 3 "Right to Food" Bill

This fall, Mainers will weigh in on several ballot initiatives.  Some of them have grabbed the attention of big money, and hence we are inundated with messages of support and opposition.  Question 3 is not one of the glitzy, big money initiatives; it has slipped in quietly, and is shrouded in innocuous feel-good language, but its repercussions are far reaching.

Question 3 asks Mainers to support a constitutional amendment that would preempt all local and state ordinances pertaining to animal cruelty, zoning, and food safety in the name of the “Right to Food.”  The Maine Veterinary Medical Association  is opposed to Question 3.
