Maine Legislature Adjourns Sine Die
Lawmakers in the Democratic-controlled House and Senate completed their final session for the year and adjourned sine die on March 30.
Bills related to campaign finance and lobbying reports were passed and signed by the governor.
Senate Bill 255 requires campaign finance reports to be filed 42 days before any election instead of just general elections.
Senate Bill 1630 increases penalties for repeated late filings of lobbyist reports by $50 for each successive violation.
Both bills are effective 90 days after the adjournment.
