MMA Legislative Calls are POSTPONED
In response to the rapidly changing health crisis the Presiding Officers of the Maine Legislature late last week cancelled all committee meetings, including public hearings, work sessions and confirmation hearings for the rest of the session. The one exception was the Appropriations Committee, for various budgetary matters and work related to the Governor’s Supplemental Budget. It was also announced the Legislature would meet one more day to consider bills “directly related to coronavirus response and other critical services, then adjourn.” The Capitol was then closed to the public, with only legislators, staff and media members allowed in the building while lawmakers worked. All bills still not acted upon or under consideration will remain active until the Legislature reconvenes.
Governor Janet Mills issued a proclamation of civil emergency Sunday to help the state cope with the growing outbreak of COVID-19 just days after the Legislature’s announcement.
