STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

1 STATE HOUSE STATION

AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

 

May 16, 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 559, "An Act To Standardize the Law Concerning Property Transfers and To Protect Water Quality."

 

Current law mandates that subsurface wastewater disposal systems on property located within a coastal shoreland area must be inspected prior to a sale of that property.  This bill would extend the mandate to transfers of properties in inland shoreland areas as well. 

 

I understand there are concerns from realtors about water quality in inland shoreland areas, but there has to be a better way to address it than to expand an expensive environmental regulation to more Maine properties.  We should be doing all we can to make it easier and less expensive to buy property and live in Maine, not harder. 

 

I would be happy to have the Department of Environmental Protection and Department of Health and Human Services work with stakeholders to discuss ways we can ensure we have high water quality in Maine's inland shoreland zones. 

           

For these reasons, I return LD 559 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor

STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

1 STATE HOUSE STATION

AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

 

May 16, 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 905, "An Act To Authorize the Construction of a Maine Turnpike Connector to Gorham."

 

This bill would allow the Maine Turnpike Authority to construct and operate a connector in Cumberland County from Route 114 in South Gorham to an interchange on the turnpike in order to address congestion issues.  The Maine Turnpike Authority and the Maine Department of Transportation have been studying this issue since 2007, and I agree that this area has a traffic problem that needs to be resolved. 

 

Recently, I stated publically that I support a connector in this area, but I don't think that it should be a toll highway with the Maine Turnpike Authority.  Maine citizens already pay enough in tolls when they travel in certain areas of the state, and we should not add additional toll costs to Maine citizens and businesses. I would support this project being done by the Maine Department of Transportation through general obligation bonds, as long as it can be done without the need for tolls.

 

For this reason, I return LD 905 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor
