November 7, 2000 Referendum Election Ballot Questions

Maine law requires that questions be organized on the ballot by category as follows: people's veto questions are first, then citizen initiatives, followed by bond questions, then constitutional amendments and finally referendum questions. There are no people's vetoes or bond questions scheduled to appear on the November 7, 2000 ballot.

The questions will appear on the November 7, 2000 ballot in the following order:

CITIZEN INITIATIVES

Question 2
Do you favor requiring landowners to obtain a permit for all clear-cuts and defining cutting levels for lands subject to the tree growth tax law?

REFERENDUM

Question 6 (PL 629)
