Governor signs breweries, library funding bills

By  | 

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Governor Mills has signed bills to ease regulations on breweries and help fund the state's libraries.

On Tuesday she signed several bills passed by lawmakers in the final hours of this year's legislative session.

Her spokeswoman says bills she didn't sign could be held until the next legislative session. Then, she'd have three days to act on them.

Lawmakers also passed bills to raise fees on opioid manufacturers to fund treatment and prevention, and join over a half-dozen states that allow online sports betting.

Lawmakers plan to re-consider bond proposals at an undetermined date this summer.
