L.D. 31 Amendment to Maine Constitution

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The following is the proposed amendment to the Maine Constitution that would require signature gathering for any “Direct Initiative of Legislation” comprise a percentage of voters for each of the two Congressional Districts.

It is my opinion that this would be a good thing. It should provide a more favorable sampling of diverse voter representation statewide. Understanding the geography of Maine’s population densities helps in understanding why such an amendment would prove to be a good thing.

Passage would require two-thirds of both the Senate and House members. Contact your representative and let them know your position on this.

Of note: There will be a public hearing on this amendment February 13th, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. State House, Room 437.
