Legislative committee delays decision on MaineHousing accountability bill


The legislative Committee on Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development postponed a work session this afternoon regarding LD 1778, the bill that would bring additional accountability to the Maine State Housing Authority, because there were members of the committee absent and the language or wording of the bill was not yet ready for discussion, according the committee chair, Senator Chris Rector.

The work session had already been continued from it’s originally scheduled session last Thursday, which was cut short partly because of a snowstorm that shut down the statehouse earlier in the day than normal. Now, the committee is tentatively planning to pick up the issue once again on Thursday, although that date has not yet been confirmed.

It’s likely that a committee vote will be taken at the continued work session, whenever it ends up being scheduled.

This post will be updated with the date and time of the continued work session as soon it is available. It will take place in the LECRED Committee Room – room 208 in the Cross Building in Augusta.
