List of measures

The Maine Wholesale and Retail Milk Price Control Repeal Initiative, also known as Milk Price Control Question, was on the November 2, 1982 ballot in Maine as an indirect initiated state statute, where it was defeated.[1] The measure would have abolished the Maine Milk Commission's power to set dealer and retail prices of milk. It would not have affected the commission's authority to set minimum prices paid to dairy farmers. The measure would have also reduced the taxes paid by dairy producers and dealers which funded the commission.[2]
