Governor Puts Kibosh on Road Signs for National Monument
Motorists on Interstate 95 in Maine won't see signs directing them to a new national monument because Gov. Paul LePage is refusing to let state workers install them reports AP.
The Maine Department of Transportation is delaying installation of the signs pending the outcome of a federal review ordered by President Donald Trump last month according to the Associated Press.
A LePage spokesman said Monday it would be "imprudent and premature" to install signs before completion of the 120-day review period for the
Woods and Waters monument created by President Barack Obama. Lucas St. Clair, whose family donated the land, said the governor was just being "spiteful."
Katahdin Woods and Waters Superintendent Tim Hudson said Monday that he'd "love" to see signs directing motorists where to go. He has $40,000 set aside for signs according to AP.
