An Act To Clarify the Intent of Referendum Questions for Voters
Sec. 1. 21-A MRSA §906, sub-§8 is enacted to read:
This bill requires the Secretary of State, with the assistance of the Attorney General and the Revisor of Statutes, to prepare a summary of each referendum question that explains the referendum question to the voter and to place this summary on the ballot after the corresponding referendum question. This summary may not exceed 250 words, except that additional words may be used if the Secretary of State considers it necessary and space on the ballot permits.
