All Brian Boru owner Dan Steele wants to do is open his Portland bar at 6 a.m. on St. Patrick's Day, three hours earlier than the time usually allowed by law on Sundays, because "it's the time when many elderly patrons come in for their one pint of the year," according to the Bangor Daily News. But Governor LePage has "threatened to veto any legislation that comes before him until lawmakers sign off on his hospital debt repayment plan," including LD116, the bill that would allow Steele and bars across the state to make the most out of the holiday.
