TABOR in Maine

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has conducted an analysis of Maine's TABOR initiative. The link to the report is http://www.cbpp.org/3-16-06sfp.htm.

The Maine Citizen Leadership Fund maintains articles online entitled, "The Truth about TABOR" on the MCLF site http://www.mainecitizen.org/nme/tabortruth.htm.

I see the merit of capping spending in Maine, although I wonder if this is the right way to create that cap.

Our Town Council Chair, Gary Foster, is a proponent of TABOR. He brings some thoughtful arguments to the table in support of the proposal.
