Another legislative session is coming to an end and the status quo reigns in Augusta. Unfortunately, there is precious little time to turn Maine’s economy around. According to population projections from the U.S. Census Bureau, Maine’s population will begin to DECLINE after 2025. In 2025, Maine’s population is projected to peak at 1,414,402.
Eighteen years may sound like a long time, but in reality we have much less time to enact pro-growth policies because it will take several years for such changes to filter their way through the economy. Here is one modest suggestion for putting Maine on the right track . . . there is still time left on the legislative clock.
