Maine Beacon: Maine’s Austerity-Based Response to the Great Recession Failed

Maine is beginning to re-open, but what does that actually mean, especially for the workers in the first additional industries slated to re-open? Esther, Ben and Mike discuss Gov. Mills’ plan to restart Maine on this episode of the Beacon podcast.

Also: The pandemic and accompanying recession will soon lead to a state budget crunch. Will Maine learn the lessons of the past?

Plus: A Maine court case is highlighting a massive funding disparity between the CMP corridor referendum campaigns, as well as Ben’s least-liked quirk of signature gathering law.
