A question on November's statewide ballot seeks to increase funding for the Maine Clean Election Fund by cutting $6 million in corporate tax breaks. If approved, Question 1 would first call for the state's Office of Program Evaluation and Government Accountability to identify $6 million of "low-performing, accountable [corporate] tax expenditures with little or no demonstrated economic development benefit." The state Legislature would then have to approve the cuts. Dana Connors, president of the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, said his group isn't opposing the referendum, but said he is concerned that it could cause lawmakers to make hurried decisions on tax incentive programs that help attract or retain businesses.
Should the state cut $6 million in corporate tax breaks to increase funding for the Maine Clean Election Fund?
