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 ...

Governor LePage Joins Coalition of States Challenging New Overtime Rule
For Immediate Release: Tuesday, September 20, 2016 Contact: Adrienne Bennett, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA - Governor Paul R. LePage joined a coalition of states today in filing a federal court complaint challenging the United States Department of Labor's new overtime rule. "If implemented, this rule would more than double the minimum salary threshold for public and private workers without Congressional authorization," said Governor LePage. "The rule will force many state and local governments to substantially increase their employment costs. Some may be forced to eliminate some services and even lay off employees." The complaint urges the court to prevent the implementation of the new rule before it takes effect, which is scheduled for December 1, 2016. The "threshold" for salaried employees is now $47,500 a year. All salaried employees making less than that will now qualify for overtime. Employers will be required to pay time-and-a-half to anyone working more than 4

LePage today announced that it has recently come to his attention that a contract executed by the Maine Military Authority (MMA) was underbid, resulting in unexpected costs to Maine taxpayers and putting good-paying jobs at Loring Development Authority in jeopardy.

"While we continue to work toward reducing costs as we renegotiate the contract terms, we must be reassured about the continuation of this contract as we move forward. We cannot in good faith create a financial burden to taxpayers and we will work to protect these good jobs for Mainers," said Brigadier General
