"Newsworthy" piece on Sen. Sharon Treat, D-Kennebec County, and her effort to protect businesses from payroll company fraud, a repeat of her 1997 attempt to do the same. Treat is co-sponsor with Rep. Matthew Dunlap, D-Old Town, of a bill that contains new rules intended to protect businesses from catastrophes such as those that arose when Saco-based payroll processor Harmon-Baert Associates shut down amid charges of defrauding the IRS and absconding with millions of dollars of its clients' tax payments.
