    Maine Governor Paul LePage is asking lawmakers to modify referendums passed by voters, especially Question 4, which he says can hurt the restaurant industry.

    According to necn affiliate WCSH, LePage wrote a letter to lawmakers saying that the way the ballot measures are worded can negatively impact the economy.

    Question 4 sought to increase the minimum wage in the state to $12 an hour by 2020.

    The new law will eventually get rid of the tip credit, something LePage says will hurt restaurant owners.
