Bill preventing $40M in revenue sharing to become law
AUGUSTA (WGME) -- At the Maine state house, a bill preventing $40 million in cuts to revenue sharing funds will become law, after Governor LePage chooses not to veto it.
The governor opposes the bill because it takes money from the state's rainy day fund to restore aid to cities and towns. He says it will hurt the state's bond credit rating.
Supporters say the bill keeps cities and towns from having to make cuts to public services.
The bill will become law 90 days after the legislature adjourns in April.
