“This afternoon Senate and House Republicans received a budget briefing from the Governor’s staff. We await the official budget document and the details that it will contain.
From what little information we have at this part in the process, it is our concern that the budget she is proposing is unsustainable.
Republicans believe we shouldn’t be spending more than we take in. We are seeking a seat at the table where, in good faith, and with civility, we can help bring the overall budget number down to a level that will not result in tax increases at the local or state levels or adversely impact Maine’s strong economy.
