AUGUSTA — A legislative committee has rejected a proposal, tucked into the supplemental budget proposed by Gov. Paul LePage, that removes a requirement that the state government publish public notices in newspapers.
The supplemental budget seeks to have public notices posted on the Internet instead.
However, the Legislature’s State and Local Government Committee voted unanimously Monday night “ought not to pass” on the part of the supplemental budget containing the public notice change.
