As the dust settles from the November elections and new legislatures begin to take office, some seem to want to take a second look at what voters did on individual ballot initiatives. One case in point is the state of Maine, where the voters approved a dramatic increase in the state minimum wage as well as the imposition of a so-called “Millionaire’s Tax” on those with incomes over $200,000. Before swearing in the new legislature, Governor Paul LePage revisited his concerns that enacting the two initiatives will make Maine “an economic wasteland” and he urged them to consider adopting changes to both measures. The voters increased the minimum wage to $12 per hour (currently $7.50) by 2020 and approved eliminating the lower tipped minimum wage ($3.75 in 2016) completely by the year 2024. In addition, they narrowly approved a new state surcharge of 3% on all incomes over $200,000 to help fund K-12 public education costs. The two legislative chambers are controlled by two different parties – the House is democrat, while the Senate has a majority of republicans – so it is questionable whether any changes to the ballot initiatives will be adopted.
