AUGUSTA — Maine business leaders will join legislative leaders in announcing the members of a special committee that will look for ways to create jobs and improve the state's economy.
Maine State Chamber of Commerce President Dana Connors will join Senate President Justin Alfond of Portland and House Speaker Mark Eves of North Berwick for Wednesday's announcement at the State House. The Democratic leaders in December announced the formation of the 15-member Joint Select Committee on Maine's Workforce and Economic Future.
Its mission is to report out legislation to strengthen Maine's work force and help Maine's small businesses thrive.
The committee chairs are Senate Majority Leader Seth Goodall of Richmond and House Majority Leader Seth Berry of Bowdoinham, both Democrats.
