Maine Governor's Office News
In January 2005, LD 1: An Act to Increase the State Share of Education Costs, Reduce Property Taxes and Reduce Government Spending at All Levels (Public Law 2005, Chapter 2) was signed into law. The goal of LD 1 was to lower Maine's state and local tax burden ranking to the middle one-third of states by 2015. The Office of Policy and Management (OPM) annually reports on the progress made by the state, counties, municipalities, and school administrative units toward reaching the tax burden reduction goal.
