Maine Legislature Recesses
The Maine 2017 regular session recessed on July 3, 2017.
The Legislature failed to pass a budget on June 30, 2017, forcing Gov. Paul LePage to declare a state of civil emergency in the absence of a biennial budget. The Legislature worked late on July 3, 2017, to pass the $7.1 billion budget.
LePage signed the budget the following morning and ended the civil emergency.
