Updated 3 years ago

Nobody can remember when a line-item veto was issued, if ever, by a Maine governor.So, legislative leaders are trying to figure out how to deal with Governor LePage’s vetoes of two items in the state budget bill.The line-item vetoes were issued saturday. Leaders of both parties in the House and Senate are polling their members to see if there’s sufficient interest in coming back to Augusta to take up the governor’s vetoes. Lawmakers last week recessed until May 15, when they’ll return to complete business for the year. But the line-item vetoes may bring them back sooner than expected.
