Maine to pick order of bond questions on ballot

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine's secretary of state will oversee the drawing that will determine the order of the bond questions on November's ballot.

The drawing will be held on Wednesday at Matthew Dunlap's office at the Nash School Building in Augusta.

The six questions, approved by the Legislature last session, include an $8 million bond to create an animal and plant disease and insect control facility and a $7 million bond aimed at expanding seafood and lobster processing in Maine. Voters will also consider a $10 million bond designed to protect drinking water sources in Maine.

One citizen initiative, which will appear before the bonds on the ballot, will ask voters if they want to ban the use of bait, dogs or traps for bear hunting.
