AUGUSTA — Maine lawmakers are planning to return to Augusta this week to vote on a state borrowing package for roads and education infrastructure projects.

The Appropriations Committee will meet Thursday to vote on the $149.5 million bond package Republican Gov. Paul LePage and Democratic lawmakers agreed to late Friday.

The proposal will then head to the full Legislature where it will be voted on in time to be placed on the November ballot.

The proposal includes $100 million for transportation, $35.5 million for education and $14 million for armory maintenance and renovations.

LePage and Democrats had clashed over the timing of the bond. Democrats had intended to return next month to vote out a proposal for the June ballot, but LePage said a November vote was necessary for construction project planning.
