Maine state offices closed Tues.


AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine state offices will remain closed for another day.

The Tuesday closing is due to a legislatively ordered shutdown day to cut government costs. It follows Monday’s closing for the Patriot’s Day holiday. The two closings give state workers a four-day weekend.

Tuesday’s is the ninth of 10 shutdown days between July 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010. The last shutdown day will be May 28.
