LePage Vetoes Energy Bill Lacking UMaine Project Support, Media Report

The Bangor Daily News, Portland Press Herald and WABI (Channel 5) were among news organizations to report Gov. Paul LePage’s decision to veto a wide-ranging energy bill that won support in the Legislature. LePage vetoed the bill because an amendment was not added to help the University of Maine’s offshore wind project. The House overrode the veto, passing the bill to the Senate, which is expected to vote next week.
