JOINT RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING JUNE 6, 2017 AS SHRINERS INTERNATIONAL AWARENESS DAY

 

            WHEREAS, on June 6, 1876, the Imperial Council, the governing body of the Shriners fraternity, was founded and, to celebrate and recognize this important milestone in Shriners history, Shriners International has declared June 6th as Shriners International Awareness Day; and

 

            WHEREAS, Shriners International is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth with nearly 200 temples, or chapters, in several countries and thousands of clubs around the world; and

 

            WHEREAS, Shriners International is a brotherhood and an organization focused on bringing families together, and many of its activities are designed to involve family members, promote shared values and help develop the next generation of community and business leaders; and

 

            WHEREAS, Shriners International is recognized around the world by an ancient symbol, the fez, and the modern man who wears the iconic red fez is a man who values philanthropy, brotherhood, family and, of course, fun; and

 

            WHEREAS, Shriners are a brotherhood of men committed to family, engaged in ongoing personal growth and dedicated to providing care for children and families in need; and

 

            WHEREAS, Shriners Hospitals for Children was founded in 1922 with the goal of providing expert medical care for children, with no financial burden to the patients or their families; and

 

            WHEREAS, today, that philanthropic effort supports 22 facilities across the United States, Canada and Mexico, treating children up to 18 years of age who have orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, cleft lip and palate and other conditions, whose advanced care is provided in a family-centered environment that is focused on maximizing a child's quality of life, regardless of the families' ability to pay; now, therefore, be it

 

            RESOLVED: That We, the Members of the One Hundred and Twenty-eighth Legislature now assembled in the First Regular Session, on behalf of the people we represent, take this opportunity to recognize June 6, 2017 as Shriners International Awareness Day.

STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

AUGUSTA, MAINE

 

June 2, 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 45, "Resolve, Concerning the Ownership of a Causeway on Long Lake near St. Agatha."

 

While I understand how uncertain ownership of causeways can be problematic, this resolve does not address that issue in a final way. Rather, this resolve creates an unfunded mandate on the Executive Branch. It mandates the Commissioner of Environmental Protection, the Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry and the Commissioner of Transportation convene a "working group" to study the ownership of a causeway near St. Agatha.

 

Typically when there are disputes as to ownership, these disputes are settled in the Judicial Branch, not in the Legislature and certainly not by three of the most important managers in the Executive Branch. I recommend those who have question about the title of the causeway seek redress in court.

 

For these reasons, I return LD 45 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.

            33 voted in favor and 2 against, and 33 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.

COMMUNICATIONS

 

 

            (2-1)  The Following Communication: (S.C. 485)

 

                        and accompanying veto, item (2-2)

 

STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

AUGUSTA, MAINE

 

June 2, 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 820, "An Act to Protect Maine's Clean Water and Taxpayers from Mining Pollution."

 

This bill will deter any company from mining in Maine, and it will discourage exploration of our mineral deposits because this bill would make them undevelopable. As a state we should encourage innovation and welcome businesses that will employ our citizens and contribute to our gross domestic product. This bill takes away the opportunity for innovative companies to select safe and cost-effective methods to mine, and it perpetuates the hypocritical, not-in-my-backyard attitude that keeps Maine at a competitive disadvantage.

 

In a world of rapidly developing technology, people want the latest electronic device-which requires metals mined from somewhere-but they refuse to believe that same level of technological advancement can occur in our manufacturing and resource extraction industries. Establishing clear and reasonable standards for mining could bring mining jobs to Maine.  Unnecessary prohibitions based on fear, not science, prevent job creation.

 

Companies will continue to choose other states to do business until we can offer them a regulatory environment that supports new ideas. I will not support a bill that takes us in the wrong direction.

 

For this reason, I return LD 820 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.
