The Maine Retirement System Funding Security and Liability Removal Referendum, also known as Question 6, was on the November 7, 1995 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved.[1] The measure required the funding of the Maine State Retirement System to be sound. It also required that the unfunded liability on the fund be paid off in 31 years and prohibited the creation of new unfunded liabilities. This amended Sections 18-A and 18-B of Article IX of the Maine Constitution.[2][3]
