A Group calling itself Maine People For Real Freedom filed a petition to repeal Maine's participation in the Federal RealID program[1]. Maine's legislature passed a bill - LD2309[2] - as the first implementation of the Federal program. This Veto referendum petition was approved for circulation 2 weeks later. Supporters contended that the Federal program was a violation of citizen's rights to privacy. see External Links for more information on the Federal program.
