AUGUSTA, Maine - Gov. Paul LePage has submitted an eight-page State of the State address to lawmakers. But don't expect the governor to follow up with a flurry of bills to accomplish his goals.
Anyone who has attended any of the governor's town meetings is aware of his priorities. High on the list is welfare and tax reform. In his letter to lawmakers, LePage outlines nine welfare changes he would like to see, as well as a sweeping tax reform plan that would eventually repeal the state income tax.
