(NEWS CENTER) -- Published reports say Governor LePage has sent a letter to towns and cities across Maine, explaining his administration's plan to suspend municipal revenue sharing for the coming biennial budget.

That means that the State will not be sending an estimated 5% of sales and income tax revenue collected back to local governments to help them keep property taxes down.

In the letter, the governor tells local officials to look at other ways to either raise more money or cut their budgets.

We talk with NEWS CENTER's political analysts Phil Harriman and Ethan Strimling about that story and others out of Augusta, this week.
