Maine summit seeks
ideas from businesses
AUGUSTA, Maine — Legislative leaders called on Congress Tuesday to pass another stimulus package featuring tax breaks for small businesses that add employees, investment in infrastructure improvements and additional financial relief for states.
Gov. John Baldacci, meanwhile, held a jobs summit with business leaders from around the state on Tuesday to solicit ideas on steps government can take to help companies and the state grow their way out of the recession.
“That’s why every one of you gets up every day and it’s certainly before me every single day,” Baldacci told representatives from 80 businesses across the state.
At a midday press conference, Democratic leaders from the House and Senate urged Congress to move forward with a jobs stimulus bill reinvesting money from the federal bailout of financial institutions, known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP.
