An Act To Repeal the Requirement That the Department of Labor Calculate the Livable Wage

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 26 MRSA §1-A,  as enacted by PL 2007, c. 363, §1, is repealed.

Sec. 2. 26 MRSA §1405,  as amended by PL 2009, c. 11, §1, is repealed.


Current law requires the Department of Labor to biennially calculate the livable wage for households in the State's counties and municipalities by family size; the department is required to report this calculation to the Legislature.

This bill removes the requirement that the department calculate the livable wage as well as the reporting requirement.
