  • What’s Been Happening in Augusta While Attention Has Been on DC?

    We listen in on some of the public hearings held by the state legislature this week.

    Producer/Host: Amy Browne

    Segment 1: Monday the Committee on Taxation considered several bills that would overturn the results of Question 2 on Maine’s ballot last November, which was approved by voters. By passing Question 2, voters approved a 3 percent surcharge on household income over $200,000 a year, with the revenue earmarked to fund public education.

    Segment 2: LD 882, “An Act Prohibiting Public Entities from Contracting with, and Investing in, Companies That Boycott the State of Israel”. The bill targets the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement that successfully applied financial pressure to help end apartheid in South Africa –and has in recent years been focused on the government of Israel’s policies toward Palestinians.

But what does all this information means, and how might it affect our day-to-day lives? Here are some thoughts on that subject.
