Maine lawmakers have adjourned the regular session without sending any public improvement bond requests to the voters. Gov. Janet Mills says she might call the Legislature back into a special session this year.
"In the coming weeks and months we will continue to talk about getting a bond package out in November," Mills said. "We are not giving up. I think people just need a break.”
Mills had proposed a $239 million package to go to the voters in November, but Republicans at the Stat House objected to packaging all the requests together, demanding a separate question for transportation projects.
Mills says there is time to work on a package over the summer that would be ready to go before voters in November.
