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 Calls Legislature in for Special Session
For Immediate Release: Friday, September 29, 2017 Contact: Julie Rabinowitz, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA -Governor Paul R. LePage issued a proclamation today calling the full Legislature to Augusta for a special session on October 23, 2017. "I am calling a special legislative session to address two time sensitive issues," stated Governor LePage. "First we must amend the recently passed ‘food sovereignty' law to ensure compliance with federal requirements. The second critical issue is the need to fund the Maine Office of Geographic Information Systems, which was left out of the final version of the budget by the Legislature." Maine's food sovereignty law needs to be amended to make it clear that local food sales subject to inspection under federal jurisdiction remain so, and any food products intended for wholesale or retail distribution outside of the local municipality must be in compliance with all food safety laws. These changes will permit the state to continue it
Governor LePage Sends Letter to Legislative Leadership Regarding Attorney General's Use of Settlement Funds
For Immediate Release: Thursday, October 5, 2017 Contact: Julie Rabinowitz, Press Secretary, 207-287-2531 AUGUSTA -Governor Paul R. LePage sent a letter to Senate and House leadership today advising them that he has directed the Office of the State Controller to transfer more than $10 million out of a fiduciary account under the discretion of the Attorney General into an Other Special Revenue account as required by 5 MRS §203-A. The funds are the results of legal settlements the State of Maine received from the Volkswagen and Moody's litigation. "I recently learned that the funds were deposited in this fiduciary fund, which is not subject to appropriation/allotment control in the State's accounting system," stated Governor LePage. "The funds were deposited into an account that could be accessed and expended by the Attorney General without legislative or executive oversight, a situation I consider repugnant to the Constitution and the laws of the State of Maine. I therefore took
