The presiding officers of the Maine State Legislature will adjourn Tuesday, March 17 after dealing with last-minute legislation on supplemental budget and bills relating to coronavirus.
There will invariably be a special session held sometime later in the year and prior to general election day, November 3, 2020. There is no way of knowing if local options tax or LD1254 will be on the agenda on Tuesday, but it is highly doubtful.
Most issues left over on the legislative agenda would be addressed in the special session.
Items remaining include but are not limited to:
• Paid FMLA
• Salary Threshold
• Instituting local options taxes and lodging tax increases
Most other bills of interest have not been reported out of committee and committee work (except for Appropriations) has been suspended as of yesterday afternoon.
