After a unanimous agreement was reached this week by the members of the Appropriations and Financial Affairs Committee on a package to address the needs of the people of Maine, House Republican leaders have polled the caucus with regard to returning for a special session. In response to the poll, a sufficient number of House Republicans have agreed to return to the state house next week for a special session.
Below is a statement from House Republican Leader Ken Fredette:
“Now that the framework and parameters set out by the House Republicans have been met, including the decoupling of Medicaid expansion from any spending package, we have polled our members with regard to returning for a special session. After completing the polling, I am pleased to announce our caucus supports returning for a special session next week. We look forward to returning to finish the work of the 128th Maine Legislature.”
