Incoherent is probably too kind a word for this maneuver. Does LePage really think borrowing for a state prison is more important than the $51.5 million transportation bond already approved, but still unissued? Borrowing to pay off hospital bills, meanwhile, sounds a lot like taking on more debt.
The governorís actions have retarded economic recovery, and violated the process by which bonds are proposed and approved. At the very least, the Legislature should enact proposed legislation to formally remove the governor from issuing bonds, since heís misused his authority.
