The Maine State Insured School Building Authority Loans Referendum, also known as Proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 4, was on the November 4, 1969 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved.[1] The measure allowed the Legislature to insure the payment of revenue bonds of the Maine School Building Authority on school projects not exceeding $25 million at any one time. This measure amended Section 14 of Article IX of the Maine Constitution and added Section 14-C of Article IX to the Maine Constitution.[2][3]


In 1976, the bonding limit on the Maine School Building Authority was reduced from $25 million to $10 million. The limit was further reduced to $10 million in 1981.
