The 128th Legislature adjourned last week without taking action on a number of significant economic issues. Among them: tax conformity proposals (with significant differences between Republicans and Democrats) to better align Maine's tax code with changes in the federal tax codes enacted last December; Medicaid expansion to cover an estimated 80,000 low-income Mainers, which was approved by nearly 60% of Maine voters last November but has stalled over Gov. Paul LePage's insistence on conditions that must be met before expansion can be implemented; several bond proposals, including a $100 million transportation bond and a $75 million bond to modernize and improve facilities and infrastructure throughout the University of Maine System.
Should Gov. LePage call the Legislature back in for a special session to tackle these issues and a spending package to cover currently unfunded bills that had strong bipartisan support?
