No Debt Over $1 Billion Without Mainers' Approval

After collecting enough signatures, a proposal that would authorize seizing the state’s electric utilities is likely to appear on the November 2023 ballot, creating billions of dollars in debt we would all have to pay off through our electric bills. The people pushing this proposal can’t say exactly how much it would cost, and they are asking us to write a blank check. Voters should know the price tag and get a chance to vote on that debt first.
