                        and accompanying veto, item (2-2)

 

STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

1 STATE HOUSE STATION

AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

 

April 11, 2017

 

The 128th Legislature of the State of Maine

State House

Augusta, Maine

 

Dear Honorable Members of the 128th Legislature:

 

Under the authority vested in me by Article IV, Part Third, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Maine, I am hereby vetoing LD 97, "An Act To Establish Speed Limits at Loring Commerce Centre and Brunswick Landing."

 

This bill allows the Department of Transportation and the Maine State Police to establish speed limits within the private property of the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority in Brunswick and the Loring Development Authority of Maine in Limestone. 

 

I am very concerned about the precedent this bill will set.  The state should not be responsible for establishing speed limits on private property.  If this bill becomes law, what process in the future will be used to determine which private ways will have the privilege of speed limits established by the state?  Please consider this carefully as you vote on this veto. 

 

For this reason, I return LD 97 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor

 

 

            Comes from the Senate, READ and ORDERED PLACED ON FILE.

            (2-2)  The accompanying item An Act To Establish Speed Limits at Loring Commerce Centre and Brunswick Landing (EMERGENCY)

(S.P. 45)  (L.D. 97)

 

            In Senate, April 19, 2017, this Bill, having been returned by the Governor, together with objections to the same, pursuant to the provisions of the Constitution of the State of Maine, after reconsideration, the Senate proceeded to vote on the question: 'Shall this Bill become a law notwithstanding the objections of the Governor?'

 

            30 voted in favor and 1 against, and 30 being more than 2/3 of the members present and voting, accordingly it was the vote of the Senate that the Bill become law and the veto was overridden.

THE DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

 

            WHEREAS, from 1933 to 1945, 6,000,000 Jews were murdered in the Holocaust as part of a state-sponsored, systematic persecution and annihilation program of genocide, and millions of other people suffered as victims of Nazism, such as the handicapped, political dissidents and many others for racial, ethnic or national reasons; and
