AUGUSTA — Republican Gov. Paul LePage is continuing his push to eliminate the tax on military pensions.

LePage will meet with veterans at the Statehouse on Tuesday to discuss the need for Maine to join 22 other states in not taxing military pensions.

The governor has said that his proposal will encourage more veterans to move to Maine.

The effort is part of LePage’s larger tax overhaul plan in his $6.3 billion budget. He also wants to slash the personal and corporate income tax and get rid of the estate tax. It would be paid for in part by raising the sales tax and expanding it to include more services.
