The days leading up to Monday's deadline has the administration mounting a major publicity effort that brought regional Health and Human Services Director Christie Hager, and regional Small Business Administration head Seth Goodall to MPBN's studios this week. Hager points out that Maine, unlike other states, has seen sign-ups run ahead of projections.
