Maine Lawmakers Won't Cut Pay Before Next Year

Augusta - Maine lawmakers won't be cutting their own pay, even if the government shuts down.  The Legislature's State and Local Government Committee on Wednesday voted to put off a bill that would have cut lawmakers' pay if they don't get a budget passed into law.  The 5-4 committee vote means the soonest anything will happen on the issue is next year's legislative session.  Maine's constitution requires a balanced budget to be enacted by June 30th every two years, or most government agencies must shut down.
