Maine Military Authority Announces Layoffs 

Maine Military Authority let 35 workers go today.

State officials say the layoffs are needed because of budget shortfalls with a project to refurbish buses for a Massachusetts Transportation Agency.

Maine Military Authority is a business set up by the state to boost employment at the former Loring Air Force Base in Limestone.

Rapid Response Team reps will meet with the impacted employees tomorrow.
