Legislative Update from Senator Ned Claxton

After an all-night, marathon session that started last Wednesday morning and wrapped up early Thursday morning, the Maine Legislature has adjourned. It’s likely we’ll come back for a few days later this summer to tie up some loose ends, but the big things have been taken care of: Bills have been either voted on or held over until the next session for additional work, and the biennial budget has been passed and signed into law. I’m incredibly proud of all the work we’ve done. 
Now, I’m looking forward to spending more time at home and out in the community. Read on to see what we accomplished in the closing days of the First Regular Legislative Session.
