What is Maine's Law on People's Veto
The people’s veto is a constitutional provision (Art. 4, Pt.3, §17) that allows the citizens of Maine, through the initiative and referendum process, to repeal a piece of legislation passed by the legislature. The people’s veto came into being as part of the initiative and referendum process enacted in 1909. To repeal a particular piece of legislation, a petition must be presented within 90 days of legislative adjournment and meet the signature requirements of any initiative proposal. If the petition is certified, the law is set aside until the issue can be voted on at the next election. See a list of people's vetoes.
