AUGUSTA, Maine - The Legislature’s Government Oversight Committee, after over a year of study, has voted to submit legislation to overhaul the state's business incentive programs.
GOC co-chairman Sen. Roger Katz, of Augusta, says the measure will require the state to develop a 10-year economic development plan. He says many states do that, but Maine has not.
“I think most people out there think we have a plan," Katz says. "We don’t have a plan and many other states do, and it’s about time Maine had one. We are going to get some of the best and brightest people we can.”
