The Second Session of the 129th Legislature will begin its work on January 8, 2020. Known as the “emergency” session, lawmakers will meet to discuss carry-over bills from 2019, as well as consider new bill titles as approved by the Legislative Council for 2020. This session promises to be a busy one – with carry-over legislation in the areas of tax policy, energy, natural resources, workforce development, and workplace issues, including paid family medical leave, to name a few. What’s more, there is likely to be a supplemental budget for consideration and approval.
The Advocacy staff at the Maine State Chamber of Commerce serves as the “Voice of Maine Business” in the Statehouse in Augusta. We were there for all of the important carry over bills that will come up next session, and we will serve as that same voice on any important new legislation that is sure to be submitted.
On January 6, the Chamber staff will offer a preview of what’s coming, as well as what remains unfinished from last year. The event will be held at the Bangor Savings Bank on Senator Way in Augusta. Registration and refreshments will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the program will run from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
