(UPDATED) June 24 AUDIO: House Minority Leader Ken Fredette (R-Newport) Agreed to Extend Legislative Session to July 16
7/15/15 UPDATE: The 7/9/15 letter from Rep. Fredette has now been added to this post.
Listen for yourself. These are highlights from audio recorded on June 24, when the House was discussing extending the first regular half of the 127th Maine Legislative session past June 30th. This audio and accompanying transcription of House Minority Leader Ken Fredette (R-Newport) agreeing to extend the Legislative session to July 16 is, quite simply, the last proof needed regarding the Governor’s erroneous assertions that the legislature had adjourned.
These 70 bills are LAW. There is no questioning the processes in place. As the Governor himself often says, “End of story”.
Here is the House Record for that evening, which serves as a transcription when compared to the audio.
