The Maine School Compliance with Educational Reform Law and Mental Health Institute Activity Building Bond Issue, also known as Bond Issue 4, 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 for school construction projects to comply with an educational reform law and for the construction of an activity building at Augusta Mental Health Institute. Of the bond sale proceeds, $5 million was allocated to an account established under the Maine Revised States, Title 20-A, Section 15914, Subsection 2. Those funds were to be used to pay the state's share of new school construction projects which were being done to comply with the minimum requirements established by Public Law 1983, Chapter 864. The remaining $1 million went to the construction of an activity building at the mental health institute.[2][3]
