Sen. Diamond earns perfect attendance record in 2018 Legislative Session

AUGUSTA — Sen. Bill Diamond, D-Windham, earned a perfect attendance and voting record during the 2018 Legislative Session.

“My record of attendance reflects the people I serve,” said Sen. Diamond. “The people in District 26 show up and work hard at their jobs. It’s only right that I approach my job in the Legislature the same way.”

During the 2nd Regular Session of the 128th Maine Legislature, Diamond cast 100 percent of the votes recorded, excluding absences excused by the President of the Senate for illness or other extenuating circumstances.

Diamond introduced legislation this year to bypass the red tape and allow fuel companies to fill other companies’ propane tanks in extremely cold weather. Diamond also had a 100 percent attendance record last year, during which he sponsored bills to ban handheld devices while driving, protect seniors from discrimination by car insurance companies, and allow Mainers to continue to use drivers’ licenses as official identification, among others.

The 128th Legislature reconvened this week to complete its business before adjourning for the year.
