AUGUSTA, Maine Lawmakers will begin hearings this week on more than $1.3 billion worth of bond proposals to fund everything from land conservation and home weatherization to repairs of college buildings and historic meetinghouses.
But with the country in the grips of a major recession and Mainers cutting their own budgets, legislators will have to carefully weigh how much debt voters will be willing to stomach when the bond proposals appear on the ballot.
These are not normal times and we cant treat this as just another bond package, said Sen. Kevin Raye from Perry, who is the Senate Republican leader.
HOW STUPID IS THIS GUY!? Maine has been leading the nation in recession! Before this country went into great depresion 2.0, we were already ahead of them!
I AM SO SICK OF BIG GOVERNMENT AND SOCIALISM!!
Accelerate the revolution, become part of the problem. Vote yes!
