Governor Announces Economic Recovery Advisory Group

Date: May 07, 2020

Governor Janet Mills announced on May 6 a 37-member group to advise on recommendations that mitigate the damage done to Maine’s economy by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and jumpstart a long-term economic recovery.  A preliminary report is due by July 15 and final report by December 1.  The mostly sector-specific group is not expected to advise on the current 4-stage plan for restarting the economy.  In a press release issued by her office, the Governor listed these five “essential issues”:

  1. Strengthening Maine’s key industries and small businesses;
  2. Strengthening workforce development;
  3. Improving opportunities for lower-and middle-income families;
  4. Expanding economic opportunities for rural communities; and
  5. Attracting new investments and innovations in key sectors such as business, communication, health care, recreation and education.
