Maine ethics comission suggests changes
After a busy 2010, the Maine ethics commission staff is suggesting some changes to Maine's law.

Another would increase the fine for violations of campaign disclaimer requirements. A third change would limit the permissible uses of "Clean Election" money. Specifically, the commission recommends a ban on using public funds to buy PDAs, smart phones and laptops. Click here for more.
