Dear Senator Collins, Senator King, Representative Pingree, and Representative Golden:
We come to you as a delegation during this time of pandemic crisis to ask you to do everything within your power to help vital Maine small businesses remain viable. COVID-19 is not only rampaging through our healthcare system, it is ravaging …
“This revised proposal represents a bipartisan effort to strengthen the state’s ability to respond to and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Maine. …It takes strong steps to boost Maine’s health care system in support of our most vulnerable citizens, support the Maine CDC, and prepare for the very real prospect of an economic downturn
Over the weekend, the Governor’s people worked tirelessly with us in Legislature to gain bipartisan support for appropriations and emergency policy which will aid individuals, small businesses, and health care providers facing great challenges and uncertainty.
Today we continue. Now is the time for Maine to pull together.
“…Members of the budget committee were meeting on Friday and were expected to continue negotiations over the weekend to finalize a spending proposal by the self-imposed Tuesday deadline to wrap up work.”
