Maine lawmakers sustain vetoes as they finish their work
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The Maine Legislature has sustained five vetoes by Gov. Janet Mills as lawmakers wrapped up their work.
Bills that were vetoed focused on governance of the University of Maine System; electric transmission lines; probation and conditions of release; retaliation against workers utilizing earned paid leave; and tax incentives for the forest products sector.
All fell shorts of a two-thirds majority in the House, so there was no need for further votes in the Senate.
