Should the state of Maine be providing new forms of financial assistance to tax payers as costs rise while the pandemic eases? 

Just in time for cooler temperatures, fuel costs are rising in Maine and across the U.S. Gas prices have already skyrocketed in parts of the state, and new reports indicate that heating oil costs are projected to increase as much as 43% across the U.S. as demand for fuel rises. Meanwhile, Republicans in Maine’s Legislature have submitted an unexpected proposal: to return unused coronavirus relief funds to tax payers. It begs the question: should the state be providing new forms of financial assistance in anticipation of a rise in the cost of living? Tell us what you think in the poll and the comments below.
