LePage Refuses to Tie Tax Conformity to School Spending

Gov. Paul LePage put out a statement on Tuesday saying that after discussing the situation with legislative leaders, he will not support any measure that ties tax conformity to more spending, specifically additional school funding.

House Democrats have passed tax conformity legislation that provides additional school funding.

Nora Flaherty and Mal Leary tried to sort out what this means.

Nora is originally from the Boston area but has lived in Chicago, Michigan, New York City and at the northern tip of New York state. Nora began working in public radio at Michigan Radio in Ann Arbor and has been an on-air host, a reporter, a digital editor, a producer, and, when they let her, played records.
Journalist Mal Leary spearheads Maine Public's news coverage of politics and government and is based at the State House.
