Insurance Reform

  • Excerpt: "I believe that there are existing programs that Maine can look at as examples to help business and the people of Maine. We do not need to re-invent the wheel we only need to provide the best opportunities available and by doing so we can draw more businesses to Maine and create more jobs for our people."

Energy
