AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine lawmakers are set to finish up their 2019 legislative session and tidy up work on marijuana sales, gun control and online sports betting bills.
The Legislature’s last scheduled day is Wednesday. Lawmakers say they hope to finish their remaining work Wednesday, even if that means working until late at night.
Legislators will decide which bonds to send to voters and how to dole out roughly $6 million in funds left over from budget negotiations. Unfunded bills that passed the Legislature include a switch from presidential caucuses to primaries.
The Legislature also faces votes on hands-free driving, aid for non-citizens, a flavored tobacco ban and a prohibition on illegally marketing and distributing opioid medication.
Bills addressing the Electoral College and court orders to surrender firearms face steep odds.
