The committee voted “ought not to pass” on four other bills dealing with the Maine Educational Opportunity Tax Credit:
The committee asked interested parties such as the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development, Maine Revenue Services, all of the bills’ sponsors to work to develop an unanimous amendment to LD 798, with the intent of making the credit easier to understand and to simplify it.
