MECEP Continues to Inform the Debate on Proposed State Budget

On March 4, 2011, MECEP hosted “Budgeting for Jobs?,” our 10th State Tax & Budget Conference.  Many of those in attendance asked for copies of materials the various speakers used in their presentations.  We’ve also had requests from people who were not able to attend hoping to learn as much as they can about the event.  We’ve created a special page on the MECEP website where we have posted links to all of the pertinent materials. 

MECEP has provided columns to several Maine newspapers (Portland Press Herald, Bangor Daily News, Times Record and Journal Tribune) to share our analysis of Governor Paul LePage’s proposed budget for the 2012-2013 biennium.  And in a March 3rd editorial, the Times Record cited MECEP’s analysis and concluded that MECEP had asked the right question: “Where’s the ‘shared sacrifice?’”
