Bill crisis continues

Democratic lawmakers said Sunday that another 51 bills have become law after Republican Gov. Paul LePage missed his deadline to act on them by Saturday at midnight.
But LePage has said he won’t enforce the laws and is expected to bring the issue to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. He said that because lawmakers adjourned last month, the requirement that he must act on a bill within 10 days doesn’t apply.
