Governor LePage introduces three bills to hopefully grow workforce

AUGUSTA - Governor Paul LePage said he's hoping to make it easier for people to get a job here in Maine.

The Department of Professional and Financial Regulation oversees the licensing boards and controls the necessary requirements for various professions.

 

Governor LePage introduced three bills Wednesday, they'd loosen the barriers for engineers, electricians, funeral practitioners and pump installers.

 

These bills would also simplify the process for people out of state to practice their trade in Maine and allow experience to take the place of education, hopefully encouraging people to come work in our state.
