>The Maine Curiosity

>BTC — Maine has tread a rocky road to success and compromise towards resolving Real ID compliance and State boundaries. Rep. Ben Chipman, a freshman elected on an Independent ticket, used Maine’s legislative history and his experience on a local People’s Veto initiative to gain support and sponsorship for An Act To Protect the Privacy of Maine Residents under the Driver’s license Laws [LD-1068]. The bill has been recently re-worked to include an Amendment; which united partisan interests and gained a nod from the Governor.

Rep. Chipman discusses the bill, the Amendment, the legislative priorities for LD-1068 and Maine’s conflicted history with Real ID.
