The Maine State Parks and Historic Buildings Bond Issue, also known as Question 7, was on the November 5, 1991 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred bond question, where it was defeated. The measure would have issued $5 million in bonds for major renovations and improvements to state parks and for the preservation of historic buildings open to the public. Specifically, $3.5 million would have gone to the Bureau of Parks and Recreation for renovations to facilities and $1.5 million would have gone to the Maine Historic Preservation Commission to pay for the restoration and preservation of historic buildings, including the State House. The estimated interest on the bonds at 5.6 percent over 5 years was $840,000.
