The bond package under consideration includes bonds for:

  • Collaboration between Southern Maine Community College and the University of Maine to be developed at the Brunswick Naval Air Station.
  • Renovations at Maine's university campuses, which would include a $5.4 million project at the University of Southern Maine's Bailey Hall in Gorham and a $1.4 million project at the UMaine School of Law in Portland.
  • A technology proving center for off-shore and near-shore wind power.
  • $128 million in funding for transportation projects, including upgrades to the International Marine Terminal in Portland.
