Governor Janet Mills has signed into law a $9.8 billion current services budget. This will ensure the continued operations of the state government for the next two years.

Mills also signed a proclamation calling the Maine Legislature back into session Wednesday, April 5.

From Gov. Mills:

I would have preferred to sign a budget that has bipartisan support, but the possibility of a government shutdown – which would be extremely harmful to Maine people – is something I cannot accept. This current services budget averts the potential for a shutdown, funds essential government services, and delivers certainty and stability to municipalities, school systems, and others that rely on state resources.
