Governor Mills’ Stimulus Plan Is Appreciated by Mainers and Supported by Republicans

During her State of the State address Thursday night, Governor Janet Mills recommended returning half of an estimated $822 million excess to Maine taxpaying citizens in the manner of one-time $500 checks.

The idea was first proposed by the Republican state Representative Sawin Millett of Waterford, whom the Governor mentioned in her speech when addressing the proposal.

The Republican state representative and the Appropriations Committee’s ranking member, Sawin Millet of Waterford, said “ “We are absolutely delighted that the governor acknowledged the point that we make as Republicans, which is that Mainers are really struggling in the face of rising inflation,”.
