Lawmakers weigh in on LePage’s first 100 days


One hundred days into his term as Maine’s chief executive, Gov. Paul LePagehas generated plenty of headlines. But is Maine’s brash, tell-it-like-it-is governor living up to the campaign pledges that helped him lead a Republican sweep of state government? As is often the case in politics these days, that depends on whom you’re asking — or, more importantly, to which party that person belongs. To Maine Democratic leaders, the list of LePage’s foibles during his first 100 days is overshadowed only by what they say is a lack of progress on the key issue of the 2010 ...

For Immediate Release: Friday, September 02, 2016 Contact: Patrick Woodcock, Director, Governor's Energy Office, 207-624-7405 AUGUSTA - Governor Paul R. LePage has called attention to the precarious future of many of the state's small hydropower resources due to expensive and burdensome federal regulatory relicensing requirements.
