    Indivisible—engaging citizens and elected officials in representative government

    What were the origins of Indivisible and Indivisible MDI?
    What are some of the highlights of your work so far?
    What challenges do you face?
    What have you learned about citizenship, and about representative democracy?
    So far, there has been so much to react to, trying to counter efforts to turn back progressive policies… do you sense a time when Indivisible will have an opportunity to focus more on vision, less on reaction? (moving from resistance to articulating and supporting a progressive agenda?)

    Guests:
    Members of Indivisible MDI
    Jill Weber
    Gail Leiser
    Ellie Oldach

    BEP Proposed Rule Changes to Allow Increased CDD Import; Solar Legislation; Penobscot River Rally and Flotilla

    1) Today we look at rule changes the Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) is poised to make which would allow for the increased importation and incineration of toxic Construction and Demolition Debris (CDD) in Maine. The BEP will be accepting comments on the rule changes until June 25th.
    2) We also look at two solar energy bills currently before the Maine legislature: LD 1504: An Act Regarding Solar Power for Farms and Businesses and LD 1444: An Act Regarding Large Scale Community Solar Procurement.
    3) We also look towards Saturday’s Penobscot River Rally and Flotilla, where people will gather to support the Penobscot Tribe’s struggle for continued stewardship of the River, and other local and statewide struggles for clean water and clean energy. Over 30 organizations are co-sponsoring this event.

    Guests:
    Hillary Lister, waste activist, Maine Matters Research, Consulting and Advocacy. ( BEP Rule Changes Summary : app.box.com/s/acwa9mqnl7firfw9y5ori9ua40oim60y)
    Dylan Voorhes, Clean Energy director at Natural Resources Council of Maine
    Sherri Mitchell, Penobscot Tribe, indigenous rights attorney, Land Peace Foundation

    This program was produced in partnership with the Sunlight Media Collective.

    Google users know that Google tracks what they do online across computers, smartphones, personal assistants, etc. Now Google has unveiled a new plan called Google Attribution which will follow users offline right into brick and mortar stores to track individual’s purchases through their credit card receipts so that advertisers can tell that their Google advertising works. What could possibly go wrong?
