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 ...

Brad Moulton, R-York, sponsored the governor's bill, L.D. 1529, to make the plates available.

Governor LePage issues statement about Riverview Psychiatric Center
For Immediate Release: Thursday, June 08, 2017 Contact: Adrienne Bennett, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA - Governor Paul R. LePage issued a statement today announcing the Maine Department of Health and Human Services will appeal a decision from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services disallowing $51 million that has been drawn down in disproportionate share resources (DSH) for the support of Riverview Psychiatric Center. "Since Riverview Psychiatric Center was decertified in 2013, our administration has clearly communicated on numerous occasions that continuing to use DSH funding posed a significant risk of disallowance. Our administration warned the Legislature over and over that action needed to be taken and those warnings were ignored. Now, we are faced with a financial tsunami," said Governor LePage. "I expect the Legislature to allocate $51 million in the biennial budget and take responsibility for its missteps and jeopardizing the financial well-being of our s

For Immediate Release: Friday, June 09, 2017 Contact: Adrienne Bennett, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA - Governor Paul R. LePage issued a statement today encouraging Legislators to seek solutions toward a balanced budget that are fiscally responsible and provide income tax relief, limits new spending and focuses on improving education.
