Veto stands in proposal to let Maine farm workers unionize
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine lawmakers have upheld the governor’s veto of a bill that would’ve allowed farm workers to unionize.
The bill passed narrowly last year and the vote was even closer at 66-67 on Wednesday in the House, failing to muster a two-thirds majority to override the veto.
Republicans were united in opposition.
The Senate also confirmed the state’s new public advocate, William Harwood.
Harwood is a utilities lawyer who served as a senior advisor in Gov. Janet Mills’ energy office.
