AUGUSTA — Maine legislative leaders have blocked off next Thursday as the day the House and Senate will return to the State House to take up possible vetoes of newly passed bills.
So far, Gov. Paul LePage has not vetoed any bills that were passed in the days leading up to last week's recess, and he has signed several others into law. Among the 19 bills remaining on LePage's desk are five bond issues totaling nearly $96 million.
The governor has not indicated what, if any bills he will sign or send back to the Legislature.
His 10-day window to act on most of the bills ends Monday, and for the five others it's Tuesday.
