AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine Gov. Paul LePage says the key to economic prosperity is to allow private businesses a chance to succeed.
In his weekly radio address Saturday, LePage says he has heard from hundreds of business leaders at job creation workshops held this fall.
LePage says business leaders are telling him the state has to better prepare students for the jobs of today, evaluate state regulations and lower the costs of doing business in the state.
He says in the upcoming legislative session that convenes in January, he will advance an agenda that promotes education and advocates for lower taxes, streamlined regulations and smaller government.
