Recommended State Budget: Key Principles & Framework

On October 18, 2018, the Maine Department of Administrative and Financial Services released details about the recommended FY 2020/2021 biennial budget proposal Governor Paul R. LePage will be providing to the incoming gubernatorial administration.

The budget document consists of ten key principles for advancing public policy in Maine and provides a framework of accomplishments and recommended next steps for each principle. It will be followed in November by a fully developed, balanced budget proposal, which will serve as a starting point for the governor-elect and their transition team as they develop the state’s next two-year budget submission. The framework is not intended to be inclusive of all the governor’s accomplishments or policy recommendations; however, it provides Mainers with a better understanding of the reforms in our state over the past eight years and potential next steps.
