Gov. Paul LePage is pushing for the passage of a $50 million bond to subsidize student loans.
LePage says the goal of the measure is to keep young Mainers in the state after they complete college and also to attract young adults from other states to work in Maine.
“And this should not be and is not a partisan issue,” the governor says. “We are requesting a $50 million bond to help lower the debt load for Maine students as well as refinance the student debt for graduates who move to Maine from other parts of the country.”
