January 12, 2011

AUGUSTA, Maine � State government offices will close at 3 p.m. due to the snow storm.

�I�ve said business is a priority, but safety is also,� said Maine Governor Paul LePage. I�m shutting down government early so state employees have the time and daylight they need to get home safely. I appreciate the effort thousands of state workers made to get to their posts today and urge everyone to take their time getting home.�

State government offices located in Aroostook County will remain open.
