The Maine Chapter urged voters to say YES on Question 6, on the 2014 referendum ballot...and voters agreed!
Question 6 was the Maine Clean Water and Wetlands Bond Issue, asking the state to expend $10,000,000 to ensure clean water and safe communities across Maine; to protect drinking water sources; to restore wetlands; to create jobs and vital public infrastructure; and to strengthen the State's long-term economic base and competitive advantage. Way to go, Maine! Voters approved the measure by a 64.58% majority!
