Final bond hearings, next week’s schedule

AFA held its last in the long series of previously referred general fund bond bills today. The following bills received hearings this morning:

LD 373, An Act To Authorize a General Fund Bond Issue To Invest in Maine’s Railroad Infrastructure

LD 987, An Act To Authorize a General Fund Bond Issue for the Portland Harbor Commercial Revitalization Project’s Confined Aquatic Disposal Cell and Dredging Projects

LD 1086, An Act To Authorize a General Fund Bond Issue To Upgrade Customs Facilities at the Portland International Jetport and the Bangor International Airport To Promote International Tourism and Commerce

Any bonds that have not yet had a public hearing should get those in the future.

Thursday, May 6 AFA will hold another work session at 10:00 AM for LD 221, the supplemental budget.

The schedule for other public meetings of the Appropriations committee will be announced soon. Members will be caucusing to consider remaining recommendations from policy committee report backs.

The Revenue Forecasting Committee will present their report to the Appropriations committee on Monday, May 3 at 10:00 AM.

Those meetings will all be broadcast both on mic and on camera.

Votes and discussions from that meeting and future meetings will be found here along with history on past budgets.
