Janet Mills on Welfare & Poverty

 

 


Build nearly 1000 more affordable homes over 8 years

Assistant Majority Leader Ryan Fecteau has proposed a Maine Affordable Housing Tax Credit program, similar to the Maine Historic Tax Credit program which helped boost the economy in recent years. This proposal would create nearly 1,000 additional affordable homes over eight years, increasing Maine's current rate of production by 50 percent. Send that bill to my desk. I will sign it.

Demands release of publically funded welfare study

Atty Gen Janet Mills demanded in a letter that Gov. Paul LePage release a publically funded report crafted by the controversial Alexander Group to anyone who requested it. When asked how he responded, LePage said: "Tell her to sue me." The letter was sent to LePage and Mary Mayhew, whose Dept of HHS signed a $925,000 contract for the Rhode Island-based Alexander Group to study Maine's welfare system, including the possibility of expanding Medicaid as allowed by the federal Affordable Care Act.
