Maine: Ballot Initiative Reform Legislation Returns to the House

Having been retained from the 2017 session, Legislative Document 31 is now back before the House of Representatives for further consideration.  LD 31 addresses problems and concerns with the state’s current “Citizen Initiative” process.  This bill proposes an amendment to the Constitution of Maine to require that the signatures on a petition consist of voters from each of the State’s two congressional districts, and the number of signatures from each congressional district be not less than 10% of the total vote for governor cast in that congressional district in the previous gubernatorial election.  LD 31 will need two-thirds of the Maine House to pass and appear on the Ballot this November.  It is critical you contact your state Representative and urge them to support LD 31!  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your Representative.

Maine: State Senate to Reconsider Important Permitless Carry Legislation Tomorrow

Today, the Maine Senate killed important permitless carry legislation, LD 660, on a party-line vote.  However, this measure will be reconsidered by the Maine Senate tomorrow, giving LD 660 another opportunity to advance in the legislative process.  If passed and enacted into law, LD 660 would allow a person who is a resident of Maine and is not otherwise prohibited by law from possessing a firearm, to carry concealed without first obtaining a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP).
