AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - Governor Janet Mills has directed most state department heads to come up with 10% cost curtailments to address revenue lost because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The departments have until August 19 to submit their proposals.

The commissioner of the Department of Administrative and Financial Services wrote in a letter to the state department heads that some programs may need to be eliminated.

Those will require the approval of the Legislature
