STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

1 STATE HOUSE STATION

AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

 

November 3, 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 1650, "An Act to Amend the Marijuana Legalization Act."

 

When I took the oath of office as Maine's Governor, I swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Maine.  When the referendum seeking to legalize marijuana passed, it put me in a difficult position: to uphold Maine law, I would be required to flout federal law.  I have sought guidance from the U.S. Attorney General on how the federal government intends to treat the legalization of marijuana by states across the nation, which conflicts with federal law.  As an increasing number of states embark upon this path, it is imperative that the federal government takes a strong and public position on this issue.

 

The Obama administration said they would not enforce federal law related to marijuana; however, the Trump administration has not taken that position.  Until I clearly understand how the federal government intends to treat states that seek to legalize marijuana, I cannot in good conscience support any scheme in state law to implement expansion of legal marijuana in Maine.  If we are adopting a law that will legalize and establish a new industry and impose a new regulatory infrastructure that requires significant private and public investment, we need assurances that a change in policy or administration at the federal level will not nullify those investments.

 

Even if federal law were of no concern, there are other significant issues that must be addressed. This bill does nothing to address failings of the medical marijuana program.  In fact, it does not attempt to ensure that regulations between our medical program and this new program have even a minimal level of consistency.  The drafters of this bill chose to ignore the significant effects that this new program—one with different levels of regulatory oversight and a different tax structure—will have on the existing medical marijuana program, its patients and the public health and safety of the Maine people.

 

A concurrent medical program with weaker regulation and a lower tax rate will undermine the regulations established by this bill.  The two programs must be considered together.  Since the passage of the referendum last November, the medical program has seen a significant increase in the number of registered caregivers, as well as the exploitation of loopholes in medical marijuana regulations to broaden the sales base for medical marijuana, which has a much lower tax rate.

 

Further still, this bill generates a bifurcated regulatory structure with two Executive Branch departments regulating the market, which is almost certain to create unnecessary additional administrative costs and confusion.  Based on initial estimates, it is not even clear that the tax revenue raised by this bill will cover the cost of implementation and regulation required by this bill, creating yet another unfunded mandate and likely a further drain on the General Fund.  The bill also establishes unrealistic deadlines for executive action that would result in a hastily crafted regulation.  If not done right, this regulation will have a significant negative impact on Maine's families and communities.

 

When I sought guidance from my counterpart in Colorado, he was adamant that Maine should learn from the mistakes made by his state and others that have pursued legalization efforts.  He urged that we take the time necessary to get our law right from the start and not rush just to get something in place. There have been serious negative effects of legalization in other states—effects that should not be repeated in Maine.  In Colorado, marijuana-related traffic deaths more than doubled since recreational marijuana was legalized.1  The Institute for Highway Safety reached similar findings, noting that automobile collisions increased by three percent in states that have legalized marijuana.2  Alarmingly, the violent crime rate in Colorado increased nearly 19 percent since legalization,3 more than double the national rate.4  If Maine is going to legalize and regulate marijuana, it is imperative that we do it right.

 

Outside specific concerns about this bill, I continue to be concerned about expanded legalization of marijuana in Maine.  The dangers of legalizing marijuana and normalizing its use in our society cannot be understated.  Maine is now battling a horrific drug epidemic that claims more than one life a day due to overdoses caused by deadly opiates.  Sending a message, especially to our young people, that some drugs that are still illegal under federal law are now sanctioned by the state may have unintended and grave consequences.

 

For these reasons, I return LD 1650 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it and continue to work to get this important law right.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor

Honorable Paul R. LePage, Governor

Honorable Michael Thibodeau, President of the Senate

Honorable Sara Gideon, Speaker of the House

State House, Augusta, Maine 04333

 

Dear Governor LePage, President Thibodeau and Speaker Gideon:

 

On behalf of the Commissioners and staff of the Maine Human Rights Commission ("Commission"), we are pleased to present you with the 2017 Annual Report of the Commission.  As you will see from the following, the Commission continues to uphold its statutory charge to enforce Maine's anti-discrimination laws.  A few highlights are as follows:

 

·        The number of new complaints filed in Fiscal Year 2017 increased by 12.4% from the year (from 611 to 687).

·        Of new complaints filed, 69.4% were based on employment, 14.8% were based on housing, 15.1% were based on public accommodations, and 0.7% were based on education.

·        With respect to type of allegation, disability discrimination represented 28.4% of complaints filed (an increase from last year's 25.2%).  Retaliation complaints increased from 19.1% to 26.8% of complaints filed, with whistleblower retaliation complaints decreasing from 18.9% to 9.5%.  Sex discrimination complaints decreased from 15.1% to 14.1%; sexual harassment is alleged in 39% of sex discrimination complaints.  Race/color/national origin/ancestry complaints constituted 10.5% of complaints filed, an increase from 9.6% last year.  Age complaints comprised 7.6%, and sexual orientation complaints were 1.1%, of complaints filed.

·        Of the 228 cases in which Commission staff completed Investigator's Reports, 70.6% (161 cases) were uncontested.  Commissioners heard argument in 67 of the 228 cases.

·        In 31 of the 228 cases determined by the Commission after an Investigator's Report, the Commissioners found "reasonable grounds" to believe discrimination occurred, a rate of 13.6% (an increase from the prior year's 11.2%).  In these 228 cases decided by Commissioners, there were 1697 distinct claims of discrimination made; of these claims, Commissioners found "reasonable grounds" in 150 claims.  The reasonable grounds rate for Commission claims was 8.8%.

·        At the end of FY 2017, 798 cases remained pending, a 9.9% increase in pending cases from the prior year.

·        Commission staff delivered or participated in or delivered more than 38 training forums during FY 2017.

·        The Commission continues to promote diversity and tolerance, and to work to eliminate unlawful discrimination for all citizens of and visitors to Maine.  We hope this report is of assistance, as our agency seeks to work closely with the Executive and Legislative branches as we jointly assure the citizens of Maine the protections afforded under the Maine Human Rights Act.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Arnold Clark

Chairman of Maine Human Rights Commission

Pursuant to M.R.S.A. Title 22, Chapter 413, Section 2069, on behalf of the Board and staff of the Maine Health and Higher Educational Facilities Authority, I am pleased to provide you with our Fiscal Year 2017 Annual Report.

In addition, Pursuant to M.R.S.A Title 22, Chapter 413, Section 2075, paragraph 1C, the Authority certifies that our reserve fund investments exceed the reserve fund requirement at June 30, 2017.

Sincerely,

November 1, 2017

 

Honorable Sara Gideon

Speaker of the House

Honorable Michael Thibodeau

President of the Senate

Members of the 128th Maine Legislature:

 

Pursuant to 5 M.R.S.A. §13070-J, Maine Revenue Services (MRS) is required to submit a report to the Legislature identifying the revenue foregone as the result of the Jobs and Investment Tax Credit ("JITC"), the Research Expense Tax Credit ("R&D"), the Seed Capital Investment Tax Credit, the Shipbuilding Facility Credit, the Credit for Maine Fishery Infrastructure Investment, and public funds spent on the Business Equipment Tax Reimbursement ("BETR") program.  Attached are three reports that provide you with this information.

 

The First attachment shows the number of individual and corporate JITC, R&D, and Seed Capital credits for tax year 2015, as well as the value of those credits.  Tax year 2015 is the last year for which we have full information on both corporate and individual filers.  Statutes governing the release of confidential taxpayer information prevent us from reporting the names of the corporations or individuals that benefited from these tax credits.  No taxpayer took advantage of the Credit for Maine Fishery Infrastructure Investment in tax year 2015.

 

The second attachment explains the Shipbuilding Facility credit.  As required by statute, the report provides information on the level of employment, yearly investment and the cumulative amount of investment.  Since the inception of the credit, the level of employment has been such that the annual cost to the state treasury has been at least $3 million per year.

 

The third attachment is a list of BETR recipients.  For purposes of this report, businesses that filed for reimbursement during the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017 are listed.  Recipients filed between August 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016 for eligible property taxes paid during calendar year 2015.  For that period the state reimbursed $31,787,742 to 1,430 companies.

 

Public Law 2017, chapter 211 (LD 1551) repealed the requirement that MRS issue this annual report.  In the future the information included in this report will be found in the biennial Tax Expenditure report issued in February of each odd-numbered year.

 

If you have any questions on this report, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Michael J. Allen
