AUGUSTA — Maine lawmakers have left the State House after completing the business before them for the two-year session, but they left the door open to the possibility they might have to return.

Leaders left open the possibility of returning to take up any vetoes of bills that were passed and sent to Gov. Paul LePage for his signature. The governor has 10 business days including Saturdays to veto those bills. His time to issue veto specific lines in the state budget has run out.

LePage is attending a Republican Governors’ Association gathering in North Carolina.

His office did not know of any particular bills the governor plans to veto. Asked about the five bond issues approved by lawmakers late Wednesday, a spokeswoman said he’ll deal with that later.
