U.S. News University Directory published an article titled “Maine congressman wants to make sophomore year free” that referenced a Bangor Daily News article about Democratic gubernatorial candidate Rep. Mike Michaud’s economic development plan. Michaud’s plan proposes students from Maine enrolled in one of the University of Maine System schools would have their sophomore year paid for by the state. Liam Nee, a University of Maine senior studying journalism and political science, was cited as saying the change would help cut down on the student debt problem he and his peers expect to face when they graduate.
