A report from the new members of Maine's Consensus Economic Forecasting Commissi
A report from the new members of Maine's Consensus Economic Forecasting Commission states that it will take longer for Maine to rebound from the recession than previously thought and job growth will be slower than predicted. Governor Paul LePage and the leaders of Maine's Republican legislators replaced all five members of the commission, including Charles Colgan, a well-known and respected economist who had served on the commission since its inception in the mid-1990s. The commission, despite being filled by appointments, has traditionally been composed of members who operate in a non-partisan and independent manner.
