Maine House Passes Bill to Add Distribution Requirement for Statewide Initiatives

On June 16, the Maine House passed LD 31 by 107-36. It amends the State Constitution to add a U.S. House distribution requirement for statewide initiative petitions. Currently initiatives need a petition of 10% of the last gubernatorial vote, but they can be collected anywhere. The bill says they need 10% from each of the two U.S. House districts.

If the Senate also passes it, then the voters would vote on it.
