Legislature Returns to Augusta for a Day August 26th
The Maine Legislature returns to Augusta today (Monday) for a day to consider a group of bond bills proposed by the Governor. Only one bill, pending on the "Special Study" table, relates directly to medicine: a bill to study guardianships as they relate to the delay of patient discharges from hospitals.
They may also consider a bill that calls for ranked choice voting in next spring's presidential primary...assuming that the effort for a people's veto of the primary bill fails to garner the necessary 63,067 signatures. If enough signatures are gathered on the people's veto of the primary, then no other people's veto measures (including the vaccine bill) would be voted on until June.
Legislators are not expected to take up any other matters in this brief session.< Previous Article | Next Article >
