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 ...

LePage has extended the emergency proclamation that allows drivers of electrical line repair vehicles to operate additional hours. This extension will expire at midnight, Thursday, November 9, 2017. "This extension will allow the crews to continue to work around the clock to bring power to the last few thousand customers who have been without electricity since last week's storm," said Governor LePage. "I thank the crews for their tireless efforts to turn the lights back on for almost 500,000 Mainers. The remaining outages are largely the most difficult to address, involving multiple trees and damaged poles that must be replaced." Text of proclamation follows. State of Maine Governor's Emergency Proclamation for Electricity Restoration Efforts WHEREAS, the State of Maine is experiencing the effects of high winds and storm conditions that have i
Governor LePage Issues Statement upon Veto of L.D. 1650, ‘An Act to Amend the Marijuana Legalization Act'
For Immediate Release: Friday, November 3, 2017 Contact: Julie Rabinowitz, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA - Governor Paul R. LePage has vetoed L.D. 1650, "An Act to Amend the Marijuana Legalization Act." "I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain this veto and continue to work to get this important law right," stated Governor Paul R. LePage. The veto letter outlines several reasons for the veto, including legalization's conflict with federal law, the bill's failure to address compatibility issues with the existing medical marijuana program, the bill's bifurcated regulatory structure and its unrealistic timelines. "When I sought guidance from my counterpart in Colorado, he was adamant that Maine should learn from the mistakes made by his state and others that have pursued legalization efforts. He urged that we take the time necessary to get our law right from the start and not rush just to get something in place," Governor LePage wrote in the letter. "If Maine is goin

Governor LePage Issues Statement on Medicaid Expansion
For Immediate Release: Wednesday, November 8, 2017 Contact: Julie Rabinowitz, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA - Governor Paul R. LePage has issued a statement in response to Mainers approving a referendum that will cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars to give "free" health care to working-age, able-bodied adults, most of whom do not have dependents. "The last time Maine experimented with Medicaid expansion in 2002 under then-governor Angus King, it created a $750 million debt to hospitals, resulted in massive budget shortfalls every year, did not reduce emergency room use, did not reduce the number of uninsured Mainers and took resources away from our most vulnerable residents-the elderly and the intellectually and physically disabled," said Governor LePage. "Credit agencies are predicting that this fiscally irresponsible Medicaid expansion will be ruinous to Maine's budget. Therefore, my administration will not implement Medicaid expansion until it has been fu
