LePage loses on 19 bills

Press Herald - Maine Attorney General Janet Mills said Friday that 19 bills held by Gov. Paul LePage have become law, dismissing the LePage administration’s contention that the Legislature had adjourned. In a four-page letter released late Friday afternoon, Mills said LePage missed the 10-day window allowed under the Maine Constitution to either sign or veto the bills. There are another 51 bills sitting on LePage’s desk, and under Mills’ opinion, those also would become law unless LePage vetoes them by midnight Saturday.
