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 ...

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

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, November 29, 2016 Contact: Adrienne Bennett, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA - Governor Paul R. LePage wrote the following letter to Legislative Leadership and members of the 128th Legislature: (Link to letter is below.)To Legislative Leadership and members of the 128th Legislature: I urge you to lessen the impact of two referendum questions approved by the voters that will cause significant economic harm to restaurant workers, small businesses, successful people and our elderly. Question 2 will increase the income tax to 10.15% on successful Maine households and small businesses, supposedly to boost funding for education, and Question 4 will increase the minimum wage in such a way that it will devastate the restaurant industry, put local shops out of business and push 325,000 elderly Mainers deeper into poverty. Increasing the income tax to the second highest in the nation could actually do the opposite of what the question proposed. Quest
