Two Maines

Updated 4 years ago

An attempt to divide Maine into two states has been defeated by leading lawmakers.Representative Henry Joy of Crystal Lake in Aroostook County says there are two Maines, the populated south and the rural north. So why not make it official? But the legislative council, a bipartisan group of house and senate leaders, rejected his proposal.Bills proposed late in the session have to get by the council in order to get to the legislature.
