Maine’s Government Shutdown Is Over
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine Gov. Paul LePage says the state government shutdown is over.
The state Legislature overwhelmingly passed a $7.1 billion budget early Tuesday. The Republican governor then tweeted: "The Maine state government shutdown is now over. Happy Fourth of July."
LePage also tweeted a picture of himself signing the bill. The state's government shut down on Saturday morning after lawmakers failed to approve a two-year budget.
