AUGUSTA — Maine legislative committees are taking up more than a dozen of Gov. Paul LePage’s nominations to state boards.

Today’s hearings come a day after the first six of the nominations facing Senate confirmation votes won the support of the agriculture committee.

Today, the Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development Committee considers four appointments to the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, one to the Maine Labor Relations Board, three to the Rural Development Authority and four to the Loring Development Authority.

The committee will also consider an appointment to the Washington County Development Authority.

The confirmation hearings are in advance of Senate votes at next Tuesday’s special legislative session.
