Clean Elections Hearings, Monday May 6, 10:00 a.m.
Five election-related bills are before the Veterans and Legal Affairs Committee:
LD 1271, 1299, 1309, 1422 and 1494.
The issues include increased transparency in reporting, enhanced funding for Clean Elections Act and a re-qualifying provision to allow matching funds that the courts will accept, a presidential primary for Maine and an instant runoff.
Any who wish to speak from written remarks may do so. Copies need to be given to the committee. Or people may just provide written statements. Having a roomful of interested citizens is always important.
