Statute Enacted By Maine's Budget Committee Basis for "Legal Fraud" Foisted on TaxPayers !

This is the Pathway to Enactment page, produced and distributed under the direction of the Clerk of the House and Secretary of the Senate of Maine.

What you will read on the  Pathway to Enactment page is consistent which what most of us learned in  Civics 101  - that laws are enactied by a vote of agreement in by both legislative houses.

Below is the explanation from the Maine Legislative Library about how laws are enacted in post-constituional Maine- and explaining that this is a standard means that Maine State Inc has been using to enact laws.

It is only under the new laws instituted in post- constitutional Maine- ie under the laws codified by Maine State Inc- that the tax payers are on the hook for what the media, long in bed with the transformation of Maine from a state to a corporation, has declared to be a "legal fraud"- all of which is based on the enactment of LD 991 into the statute- not by a vote by both houses- but by the budget committee which enacted it by writing it into the budget!

With emphasis added by myself- This is the response I have recieved to my latest FOA request:
In response to your request for further information, I have included some information that should be helpful. ·         P.L. 2011, ch. 380, Part Q can be found starting on page 856: http://lldc.mainelegislature.org/Open/Laws/2011/2011_PL_c380.pdf·         What Ryan is referring to is that while the one bill did not pass (125th LD 991), the idea of the bill seems to have been rolled into the larger budget bill that year. In that way, while LD 991 did not pass, this program was still enacted into law because it was contained in the budget. This is relatively common, and the motivations may sometimes be unclear, but the result is similar to if the original bill passed. It is important to note that the language enacted in the budget bill (P.L. 2011, ch. 380) is not identical to the language in 125th LD 991 or amendment S-299, but it seems similar.
·         This program, enacted by P.L. 2011, ch. 380 Part Q is codified as 10 MRSA §1100-Z: http://legislature.maine.gov/statutes/10/title10sec1100-Z.html If you have further questions please feel free to contact us again. Alex BurnettReference LibrarianMaine State Law and Legislative Reference Libraryemail: lawlib.reference@legislature.maine.govwebsite: http://www.legislature.maine.gov/lawlibphone: 207 287-1600

You can look it up for yourself. LD991 was been inserted into a budget meeting and by that means enacted into law by the budget committee and that is why the media is reporting that the Maine taxpayers have to foot  a bill for "legal fraud " now reported at $91 million dollars, as the committee makes moves to double the limit of the New Markets Refundable Tax Credit !

As I reported in an earlier post- when I first discovered that LD 991 had died in the legislature and reported that fact on this blog, the bill tracking link was temporarily changed to point to a page that said a committee had approved it. (post-constituional Maine)

When I wrote about how this only confirmed that the bill was never passed by the legislature, the link was switched back to point to the standard legislative session report ( Constitutional Maine)

The Freedom of Access Act does not require that public information be posted online in any particular format, just that public records be made available.

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory .

Trump has brought into focus a long brewing social crisis SELECTED FOR THE BEST OF TREMR darren-deloach-unsplash I was a Republican, until the 2016 convention when a petition gathered enough signatures to let delegates vote their conscience, and was promptly dismissed by a voice vote.  That was when I first became aware that the Republican party was afraid, intimidated and dominated by the Trump base. I felt the party took the traditional base of the party, which included myself, for granted, as if we were party players, guaranteed to support the party, unquestionably, no matter where it went. Deeply ro o ted party obedience has been established. Many whom I once respected and are no longer recognizable. Those of us who did not follow the leaders no longer have a place in the Republican party and have largely become Independents. I voted straight blue in the last election, but consider myself Independent. There is no reason to believe that either one party or the other will continue to
