On Friday, May 5, the Legislative Committee on Veterans and Legal Affairs voted Legislative Document 31 out of committee with an “ought to pass” report.

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.
