AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A stronger-than-expected economic recovery from the pandemic is expected to give a boost to state revenues.

Maine’s revenue forecasting committee said income is projected to increase by $462 million this year and $460 million next year.

The shift eases budget restrictions as Democratic Governor Janet Mills prepares to send a supplemental budget proposal to lawmakers that will likely include more money for schools and health care.
