List of measures

The Maine Asbestos Problems in State Facilities Bond Issue, also known as Bond Issue 5, was on the November 4, 1986 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred bond question, where it was approved.[1] The measure issued $6 million in bonds to identify and correct asbestos problems in state facilities. The proceeds of the bonds were to be expended under the direction of the Commissioner of Administration.[2][3]

Aftermath

Two measures regarding asbestos were on the ballot in 1987. One measure 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, but it was defeated. The other measure succeeded in issuing $6 million in bonds for the detection and removal of asbestos hazards in state facilities and public schools. 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]
