    Lawmakers have returned to Augusta once again to consider dozens of vetoes along with bonds and legislation held up by politics.

    The Legislature's special session continued Monday at an expected cost for taxpayers of roughly $40,000 per day. The House voted to uphold LePage's veto of legislation providing funding for voter-approved Medicaid expansion.

    Republican Gov. Paul LePage recently vetoed about three dozen bills. He has chastised lawmakers for trying to spend all of Maine's $141 million surplus funds.

    LePage also wants lawmakers to slow down future voter-approved increases to the state's minimum wage. Such conservative efforts have failed this year, but LePage's proposal has become a bargaining chip.
