LD 434: FUELS TAX

QUESTION TO SPEAKER GIDEON

On July 3, 2017, I arose on the floor of the Maine House to ask Speaker Sara Gideon two questions during consideration of a state budget to end the shutdown of Maine state government that was ongoing then. Speaker Gideon and the House Democrats wanted to push through a tax increase on hotel and motel lodgings that was not needed to balance the state budget (as is required under the Maine constitution). But they still pushed pushed for it and shut down the state government over it. I specifically asked Speaker Gideon if Governor LePage would sign the proposed state budget if she took out that tax increase. She said he would.
