Maine Revenue Sharing Issue - LR 2721

As you know only too well, the state Legislature, current governor and his predecessor have been ignoring Maine’s 42-year-old Municipal Revenue Sharing law in recent years, raiding $73 million from that program this year (FY 2014) in order to “balance” the state’s $6.3 billion budget. Worse, in FY 2015, as things currently stand, the fund would plummet from $60 million to $20 million (by law, it should be $146 million). Because of the Legislature’s ongoing actions, we all have seen consecutive years of forced property tax increases and reductions in municipal services. The trend is bad and it may get much worse.

History

In most New England towns, the adult voting population gathered annually in a town meeting to act as the local legislature, approving budgets and laws. Day-to-day operations were originally left to individual oversight, but when towns became too large for individuals to handle such work loads, they would elect an executive board of, literally, select(ed) men to run things for them.
