AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Republican Gov. Paul LePage has vetoed a handful of bills that deal with taxes in Maine.

One bill the governor vetoed Tuesday would reduce the length of time in which someone can appeal a municipality’s decision to take property because of unpaid taxes. LePage said that time period was recently reduced and enough time hasn’t passed to prove that another reduction is necessary.

Another bill would reduce the excise tax and motor vehicle registration fee of certain vehicles that have been adapted to serve people with disabilities. A third bill vetoed by LePage would exempt a statewide network of libraries from the state’s sales tax.

LePage’s budget proposal includes a massive tax overhaul and the governor says additional tax exemptions should be carved out until lawmakers act on his plan.
