Governor Paul LePage signed three bond proposals for research and development, sending the measures to voters this November, the Associated Press reported. The $21 million in bonds approved by LePage is part of a $50 million borrowing package lawmakers passed as they wrapped up the session. One bill would provide $8 million to renovate and improve a University of Maine Cooperative Extension lab that assists farmers and foresters and identifies pests, as well as plant and animal diseases. The Portland Press Herald and SFGate carried the AP report.
