            (2-1)  The Following Communication: (S.P. 425)

 

TOWN OF NORWAY, MAINE

RESOLUTION IN OPPOSITION TO COST SHIFTS TO TOWNS

 

March 21, 2013

 

WHEREAS, the Governor's unprecedented biennial budget proposal places town in an untenable and uncertain fiscal position during their budget planning; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposal includes the elimination of $238 million in municipal revenue sharing; falls $200 million short of funding local schools at the 55% level passed in referendum; would cut the state's reimbursement for General Assistance by an estimated $6.7 million; would eliminate the Homestead Exemption for anyone under the age of 65; would take $8 million in truck excise tax revenue from towns; would create a corporate tax exemption for large amounts of currently taxable property, resulting in significant losses of local tax revenue; and

 

WHEREAS, the Governor's proposal also contains cuts to health and human services such as prescription drugs for the elderly and disabled; to all funding for clean elections; to wages and benefits of public workers; while also rejecting federal funds to make healthcare affordable to over 44,000 Mainers; and

 

WHEREAS, all of the above shifts costs to towns, whose only major means of raising revenue is property taxes, be it

 

RESOLVED, the town of Norway calls upon the Maine Legislature to reject these proposals, identify less harmful costs savings and to raise revenue in an equitable fashion to avoid this regressive tax shift.

JOINT RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY
OF THE LOSS OF THE USS THRESHER

 

            WHEREAS, the nuclear fast attack submarine USS Thresher (SSN‑593) was designed and built at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, launched in July 1960 and commissioned in August 1961; and

 

            WHEREAS, the USS Thresher was the first of a brand-new class of submarine created to be a weapon of deterrence at the height of the Cold War and was considered the most advanced naval vessel of its day; and

 

            WHEREAS, on April 10, 1963, the USS Thresher became the first nuclear submarine to be lost at sea, when it sank during a deep-diving test more than 200 miles off the New England coast, taking with it 129 brave United States Navy sailors and civilian workers; and

 

            WHEREAS, thirteen of the men who died aboard the USS Thresher were employees of Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, 3 of the Navy officers lost were stationed at the shipyard and several of the Navy crewmen were residents of Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts and all left behind grieving families, friends, neighbors and colleagues; and

 

            WHEREAS, the loss of the USS Thresher remains the worst submarine disaster the world has ever known and directly resulted in the Navy's creation of SUBSAFE, a safety program to ensure that no submarine ever suffers a similar fate, and no submarine that has passed through the program has been lost; and

 

            WHEREAS, the Town of Kittery, birthplace and final home port of the USS Thresher, is dedicating a 129-foot flagpole in Memorial Circle on April 7, 2013 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of this terrible tragedy and to honor the 129 Cold War casualties lost that day, men of genius and adventure who represented the finest qualities of our Nation; and

 

            WHEREAS, the State of Maine and its citizens, and the entire United States of America and its citizens, are greatly indebted to the sacrifice of these brave pioneers; now, therefore, be it

 

            RESOLVED: That We, the Members of the One Hundred and Twenty-sixth Legislature now assembled in the First Regular Session, on behalf of the people we represent, take this opportunity to recognize the 50th anniversary of the loss of the nuclear fast attack submarine USS Thresher (SSN‑593) and to honor the 129 men aboard who died in the service of their country.

JOINT RESOLUTION IN HONOR OF THE MAINE
FARMER AND MAINE AGRICULTURE

 

            WHEREAS, recent statistics show that Maine has about 8,000 farms, the bulk of which are small, family-owned operations, that provide full-time and part-time employment to more than 90,000 workers, approximately 13% of the State's workforce; and

 

            WHEREAS, Maine's agricultural enterprises provide more than $684,000,000 through the sale of farm products and contribute more than $2,000,000,000 annually to the State's economy; and

 

            WHEREAS, an overwhelming majority of Maine people believe that buying local Maine agricultural products helps the State; and

 

            WHEREAS, Maine farmers are the stewards of 1,360,000 acres of land, a vital resource in maintaining the food security of Maine people; and

 

            WHEREAS, Maine is first in New England in the production of food, first in New England in the value of aquaculture sales, first in the world in the production of wild blueberries, the world leader in the production of brown eggs, third in the Nation in the production of maple syrup, eighth in the Nation in the production of fall potatoes, second in New England in milk and livestock production and the only state anywhere involved in the commercial production of fiddleheads; and

 

            WHEREAS, apple orchards across the State produce a crop of significant economic benefit as well as contributing to the State's tourism and recreation industries; and

 

            WHEREAS, agriculture shaped Maine's past, maintains much of Maine's scenic open space, provides recreational opportunities, makes a significant contribution to the nature and character of Maine's many rural communities and provides for a strong future; now, therefore, be it

 

            RESOLVED: That We, the Members of the One Hundred and Twenty-sixth Legislature now assembled in the First Regular Session, pause in our deliberations to honor Maine farmers and innovators who have contributed so much to the betterment of our State, to pledge our support and encouragement and to urge the youth of Maine to pursue the growing opportunities for careers in today's technologically advanced agriculture industry; and be it further

 

            RESOLVED: That a suitable copy of this resolution, duly authenticated by the Secretary of State, be transmitted to the Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry as a token of the esteem in which those in this vital industry are held.
