The Maine State Office Building Bond Issue Referendum, also known as Proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 7, was on the September 10, 1951 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated.[1][2] The measure would have authorized a bond issue up to $3 million payable within 15 years at a rate of interest not exceeding 4 percent per year, payable semi-annually to pay for the construction of a state office building. This would have added Section 21 to Article IX of the Maine Constitution.[3]
