School Consolidation Veto 

As expected, Governor Baldacci has vetoed the measure.

Baldacci has submitted a similar bill that doesn’t contain the items that he found objectionable.

The new bill would allow school units to negotiate local cost sharing agreements, among other things.

The governor did sign a bill that will increase snowmobile registration fees.

Residents will have to pay 35 dollars per season. Non-residents will have to pay 88 dollars.

The money will go toward trail-grooming and improvements.
