AUGUSTA - Maine's budget crisis has politicians scrambling in Augusta to come up with a solution to the problem, Governor LePage has submitted his proposal but it has many questioning what it would mean for your children's education.
The current proposal includes taking 14 million dollars in casino funds earmarked for public schools and relocate it to the general fund. Democrats say it sets a bad precedent, but Commission of education Stephen Bowen doesn't see any other option.
And its not just education that might see some major changes.  Bangor could end up losing millions and having to make drastic cuts that will affect you.  According to MPBN  town budgets across the pine tree state will collectively be hit with over 400 million dollars in cuts.
