Governor Janet Mills submitted the first part of her State of the State address in a letter to the Maine Legislature and Maine people this morning, Jan. 30. The reason for the change, according to Mills, is because of the mass shooting in Lewiston and three devastating storms.
In Part 2 tonight, the Governor will dedicate the entirety of the televised address to a Joint Convention of the Maine Legislature to extreme weather, violence, and public safety issues.
In part one she urges Legislature to practice fiscal responsibility & unveils timely investments to build more housing, fight the opioid epidemic, and improve child safety.
Governor Janet Mills declared that “despite the very real challenges we have faced over the past several months, our state is getting stronger every day.”
