List of measures

The Maine Asbestos Hazards in State Facilities and Public Schools Bond Issue, also known as Question 11, was on the November 3, 1987 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred bond question, where it was approved.[1] The measure issued $6 million in bonds for the detection and removal of asbestos hazards in state facilities and public schools. The proceeds were to be expended under the supervision of the state director of public improvements.[2][3]

Background

The first legislatively-referred bond question regarding asbestos in Maine was in 1986. It issued $6 million in bonds to identify and correct asbestos problems in state facilities. Another legislatively-referred bond question failed in 1987 which would have issued $8 million in bonds for capital repairs and improvements to state facilities, as well as the removal of asbestos from state facilities.[1]

Aftermath

In 1989, another legislatively-referred bond question issued $12 million in bonds for the detection and removal of asbestos and other health-related indoor air quality hazards in state facilities and public schools, as well as the removal of hazardous chemicals from public schools.[1]
