Governor Calls For Legislative Special Session

By  | 

AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) Governor LePage is calling lawmakers into special session next month.

He wants them back at work October 23rd to fix problems with Maine's new food sovereignty law.

They'll also be looking to restore funding for the Maine Office of Geographic Information System, which was inadvertently removed in the legislative process.

And, lawmakers will deal with sales of recreational marijuana now that the panel has agreed on a rewrite of the law that includes doubling taxes on recreational pot sales.
