Gov. Paul LePage’s administration is putting the brakes on a multimillion-dollar contract to refurbish public transit vehicles for the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority.
In 2014, the Maine Military Authority won a $19 million contract to rehab 32 articulated commuter buses for the Boston-area transit system, known as the MBTA. The goal was to stem job losses at the Loring Development Authority.
Susan Faloon, a spokeswoman for the Maine Emergency Management Agency, says it recently became apparent that the deal was a money-loser for Maine.
