AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Legislature will convene Monday to at least begin handling 42 vetoes from Gov. Paul LePage, including startup funding for Medicaid expansion and dozens of other hotly contested items keeping legislators working into the summer.
The vetoed bills also include a $68 million spending package that would fund services to Mainers who are disabled and expand opioid addiction treatment, an effort from LGBT activists to ban so-called “conversion therapy” and local efforts to restart a shuttered state prison in Washington County.
The Legislature must get two-thirds votes in both chambers to override the governor’s vetoes. You can follow its work Monday by using the veto-tracking graphic below.
