The Pet Food Institute , along with the PIJAC , NE Ag and Feed Alliance , Maine Merchants Association , the Maine Association of Grocers , Hannaford Supermarkets , Wal-Mart and the Maine Oil Dealers Association , is campaigning against a proposed 6% tax on petfood in Maine.
The institute is also looking for citizens to become involved by voicing their opinions to Maine legislators ( e-mail the agriculture, conservation and forestry committee's clerk).
