Maine Gov. Paul LePage has presented a $6.3 billion budget. It proposes cutting income taxes and eliminating the estate tax. The budget outlines partially paying for both measures with a broader and higher sales tax.
The Lewiston School Committee voted unanimously Monday night on the school budget that would increase property taxes 5.4 percent. That would translate for a home valued at $150,000 in Lewiston to a tax increase of $72.
