    Producer/Host: Meredith DeFrancesco

    Issue: Environmental and Social Justice
    Program Topic: Governor LePage’s “Welfare Reform” plans for his second term

    Key Discussion Points:
    a) Today we look at some of Governor LePage’s “welfare reforms”, those he has recently instituted and measures slated for his second term.
    b) We also look at how “welfare reform” is defined, and how the governor’s strategy and measures hurt, instead of helps those in poverty.
    c) We speak with the public policy director of the low income policy and education advocacy organization Maine Equal Justice Partners about the negative impacts and missed opportunities in the LePage administration strategies, and the positive steps that could be taken to improve the lives of low income Mainers.

    Guest: Chris Hasted, public policy director at Maine Equal Justice Partners www.mejp.org
