Maine House Adopts Call Center Bill
By a 78-63 vote, Maine's House of Representatives approved a call center bill that would help keep jobs in the state and penalize businesses that relocate their call centers overseas.
Similar to the federal legislation, the bill directs the state to compile a list of Maine employers who have relocated call centers outside of the country. Those employers wouldn't be able to get state grants, loans or tax benefits for five years.
