Tampon Tax is NOT Law Yet! Deadline is Tomorrow!
You can actually help get this signed into law before the deadline tomorrow!
Here's how you can help. Period Equity has been in touch with Denise Tepler, the state representative who introduced the tampon tax exemption bill..

Please do what you can - tell your friends, tell your husbands and boyfriends (the ones we send out to Rite Aid to pick these up!) and let's make this a law in Maine!
