It’s not just schools that are worried about falling behind due to snow days, t’s the Maine legislature as well.
Over this week and last, lawmakers have lost three work days to snowstorms. Senate President Mike Thibodeau, a republican from Winterport, says the complexity of some issues, such as tax conformity, also are slowing down the legislative process. He says leaders are trying to find ways to get caught up.
“My guess is that we are going to end up with some Fridays and Mondays…we are going to push these committee five, maybe six days a week,” he says.
