AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

 

June 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 454, "An Act To Ensure Safe Drinking Water for Families in Maine."

 

This bill is contrary to several of my core principles: it adds regulation to businesses, increases a state fee and puts requirements into statute that are already done in practice. The bill primarily does four things that are not necessary.

 

It requires DHHS to create a uniform water testing recommendation. But DHHS already makes testing recommendations; it is not necessary to pass a law memorializing it in statute.

 

It increases the fee for well testing at the State Health and Environmental Testing Lab by $10 or less per test and uses the resources to create the Private Well Safe Drinking Water Fund.  This is a fee increase that will be passed on to Maine families who need a water test and may actually serve as a disincentive for families to test their wells.

 

It also requires the Department to update its educational outreach materials as needed. The Department already has related educational outreach materials and already updates them as necessary. Therefore, it is not necessary to memorialize basic upkeep of educational materials in statute.

 

Finally, this bill requires well drillers to provide up-to-date information on water testing when drilling a new well. I support well drillers providing good information to their customers. However, I do not support government mandating that they provide that information. This is not government's role, and it simply adds to the regulatory burden for Maine businesses.

 

For these reasons, I return LD 454 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor

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 929, "An Act Regarding the State Retirement System."

 

The State retirement system is in need of major overhaul. I cannot support minor tweaks and carve-outs while we all know what is needed: substantive reform that allows portability and promotes an investment philosophy that increases financial returns and addresses the unfunded liability.

 

Tweaks like the one proposed in this bill simply kick the can down the road and wait for future legislatures to solve the pressing issues with our retirement system. I cannot participate in such an effort.

 

For this reason, I return LD 929 unsigned and vetoed. I strongly urge the legislature to sustain it.

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor

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 1010, "An Act To Allow for the Regulation of Transportation Network Companies at Airports."

 

This bill would allow a primary airport as designated by the Federal Aviation Administration that annually has at least 20,000 enplaned passengers the ability to regulate and charge fees to a transportation network company (TNC). I do not support this bill because Maine already taxes and regulates businesses far too much, which is harming our economy and driving people out of our state.

 

Allowing airports to create their own regulations and fees on TNCs would be burdensome and costly.  Maine needs to instead focus on streamlining regulations, lowering taxes and creating an environment where Mainers can prosper. This bill takes us in the wrong direction.

 

For this reason, I return LD 1010 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor

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 L.D. 1062, "Resolve, to Expand the Availability of Light-duty Zero Emission Vehicle Supply Equipment."

 

This bill would require the State's Beneficiary Mitigation Plan pursuant to the Volkswagen Mitigation Trust Agreement to include a proposal to allocate 15% of the funds received for light-duty, zero-emission vehicle supply equipment.  It also requires that a portion of these funds be disbursed through a grant program for such light-duty, zero-emission vehicle supply equipment, and it includes details on certain conditions that should be given preference for such grants.

 

The State's Beneficiary Mitigation Plan is now being developed under the lead of the Maine Department of Transportation, in collaboration with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and the Governor's Energy Office. In developing this Beneficiary Mitigation Plan, the agencies will undertake a review of a variety of possible mitigation approaches, including consideration of zero-emission vehicle supply equipment.  L.D. 1062 seeks, instead, to predetermine details of the Beneficiary Mitigation Plan without evaluation, agency review, cost analysis or opportunity for full public comment as required by the Volkswagen Mitigation Trust Agreement.

 

To allow the preconceived determinations included in L.D. 1062 to circumvent the careful development of the Beneficiary Mitigation Plan, which will be informed by expert agencies and public comment, would be poor public policy.

 

For this reason, I return L.D. 1062 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

 

June 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 L.D. 1326, "An Act To Reduce Morbidity and Mortality Related to Opioid Misuse."

 

Two components of this bill are particularly concerning to me. The first is the decriminalizing of certain drug paraphernalia in the midst of an addiction epidemic. The second creates a "medical assistance" exemption from criminal liability for a person who seeks medical assistance for an overdose. This is similar to LD 1079, which was vetoed and sustained.

 

I am frustrated at the message this bill would send to our children by legalizing the possession of needles and providing immunity for illicit drug possession in certain circumstances. Maine kids need to understand there is no "safe drug use" anywhere, anytime. They need to understand that drug addiction destroys lives. And we, as the State's leaders, cannot send a message of passive consent for these dangerous and potentially deadly activities.

 

I share the desire to help people get into treatment. Addiction is one of the greatest destructive forces facing our families today. Maine's families are Maine's future—they need to succeed and prosper. That is why I have been working with the Department of Health and Human Services to make it a priority to invest in evidence-based treatment options that will produce the best outcomes for individuals dealing with addiction. We've increased access to medicated-assisted treatment in areas that have the greatest need with a focus on helping the uninsured.

 

Last year, DHHS invested $3 million to increase access to services, and in December $2.4 million went to create 359 MAT slots throughout the state, specifically for the uninsured. Most recently, my Administration worked with the Legislature to authorize $4.8 million to launch the Opioid Health Home model; this will improve access to coordinated primary care and addiction treatment for more than 400 Mainers. This fiscal year, we anticipate the State will spend $80 million for substance abuse treatment—a significant increase from the $49 million spent in 2008. 

 

Let's continue to engage our families and communities and prioritize quality treatment, rather than erode the legal consequences and send the wrong message to our kids.

 

For these reasons, I return L.D. 1326 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor
