A bipartisan coalition of Maine mayors and Gov. Paul LePage are at odds over how to balance the state's proposed $6.3 billion budget. The group's plan asks the state to avoid suspending municipal revenue sharing payments by delaying income tax cuts passed by the previous Legislature, and also suggests a temporary sales tax increase — from 5% to 6% — and other tax reforms. LePage says the tax increase proposals don't address what he called "out-of-control government spending."

Should the state raise taxes to meet its budget?
