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 ...

LePage staff discussed altering law for Brown

While an official inquiry into the eligibility of Darryl Brown to lead the Maine Department of Environmental Protection under Maine statute wasn't done until recently, two senior LePage administration aides talked with legislative leaders in February about amending state law to ensure he could. In interviews last week, House Speaker Bob Nutting, R-Oakland, and Senate President Kevin Raye, R-Perry, said Dan Billings, the governor's legal counsel, and Kathleen Newman, deputy chief of staff, met with them in late February to inform them a Maine law might pose a problem for Brown and initiated a ...

LePage pushes gold star plates

Gov. Paul LePage is working with the Legislature to make Gold Star license plates available to family members of Mainers who have been killed in military operations. Rep. Brad Moulton, R-York, sponsored the governor's bill, L.D. 1529, to make the plates available. Although a similar bill failed in 2009, Moulton has worked with John Mixon of Ogunquit, a Vietnam veteran, to raise money from private sources to cover the cost of making the plates. Maine is one of only three states that do not offer Gold Star plates, according to the House Republican Office. The bill has been referred to the ...

Republicans Stand Strong, Eliminate Tax Increase from Budget; Government Shutdown Ends
For Immediate Release: Tuesday, July 04, 2017 Contact: Adrienne Bennett, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA - A three-day state government shutdown ended early Tuesday morning with a signature from Maine Republican Governor Paul R. LePage on the biennial budget for fiscal years 2018-19. Negotiations on the budget went late into Monday night as the Governor hosted multiple meetings in his Cabinet Room with House Speaker Sara Gideon, Republican House Minority Leader Ken Fredette and other House Republicans. "I thank legislators for doing the right thing by passing a budget that does not increase taxes on the Maine people," said Governor LePage. "I especially thank the House Republicans for standing strong throughout these very tough budget negotiations to protect Mainers from an unnecessary tax hike. I am pleased to announce state government will reopen and resume normal operations. Since it is the Fourth of July, Ann and I hope all Mainers enjoy a wonderful day with
Legislature's Failure to Act on Budget Forces Governor to Prepare Civil Preparedness Emergency Order
For Immediate Release: Thursday, June 29, 2017 Contact: Adrienne Bennett, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA - Governor Paul R. LePage is prepared to issue a Civil Preparedness Emergency Order as a result of the State of Maine Legislature's failure to deliver a budget by the end of the fiscal year, which would prevent a government shutdown. "The Legislature has had six months to address the budget I sent to them. Now we are in the eleventh hour and liberal Democrats have still refused to budge, which will lead to a government shutdown," said Governor LePage. "These Democrats are not interested in a budget that benefits hard-working Maine taxpayers. They are being controlled by labor union bosses and radical activists at the Maine People's Alliance." Preparing for the likelihood and severity of government shutdown, Governor LePage last week directed commissioners of every department, as well as the Treasurer, Secretary of State, State Auditor and Attorney General, to determi
Governor Declares Civil Emergency Effective Midnight, Ensures Mainers Receive Benefits
For Immediate Release: Friday, June 30, 2017 Contact: Adrienne Bennett, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA - In the event no budget is signed into law by the end of the fiscal year, Governor Paul R. LePage has signed a proclamation (see attached) declaring a civil emergency and an Executive Order directing state departments and agencies to take the necessary steps for a state government shutdown. The Order is effective at 12:01 a.m. on July 1, 2017 and remains in effect until the state of emergency is terminated by Executive Proclamation or until 5 p.m. on July 3, 2017, whichever is earlier. "This is not about today or tomorrow," said Governor Paul LePage. "This is about the future of Maine. The Maine people are taxed enough. I will not tax them anymore and in my budget overall taxes were decreased. Maine has plenty of revenue to fund state government without raising taxes." Governor LePage submitted his budget in January to the Legislature. Even after six months of inactio
Governor takes action to give state employees Monday off with pay
For Immediate Release: Sunday, July 02, 2017 Contact: Adrienne Bennett, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531Since the Legislature has still failed to put a budget in place, Governor Paul R. LePage has announced he will allow state employees to take administrative leave with pay for Monday, July 3.This is the same authority the Governor exercises in administratively closing non-emergency state offices the day before Christmas or Thanksgiving so employees can enjoy an extended holiday with their families and loved ones.In addition, the Governor will provide employees already working as designated emergency personnel on Monday with compensatory time off for the work they perform on that day."Speaker of the House Sara Gideon is intent on prolonging the state government shutdown and making it uncertain whether state employees who have been forced out of work will get paid for Monday," said Governor LePage. "It is unconscionable for state workers to lose a day's pay because of the Legislature's
