House Republican Leader's Statement on Budget Enactment

AUGUSTA - Maine House Republican Leader Ken Fredette of Newport issued the following statement upon the enactment in the House of LD 1858, the supplemental budget for fiscal year 2015. The budget passed with a vote of 136-8 early Tuesday afternoon.

"I'm pleased that Republicans and Democrats were able to reach an agreement that keeps the state budget in balance while making sure Medicaid prioritizes our neediest elderly and disabled neighbors. We must continue to ensure Maine's nursing homes and people on wait lists get the support they need, and this budget puts a solid down payment on that effort."
