As mayor of Augusta, I’m writing to thank our local legislators for their strong support of revenue sharing. Earlier this month, they voted to support L.D. 1762 and prevent a $40 million cut to revenue sharing. L.D. 1762 will preserve $710,000 in revenue sharing for the city of Augusta. These legislators stood by the commitment to revenue sharing made in the two-year budget.

Specifically, I want to thank Rep. Corey Wilson, Rep. Matt Pouliot, Rep. Lori Fowle and Sen. Roger Katz. Their vote for L.D. 1762 will limit property tax increases and/or service cuts in Augusta during the coming year.
