Maine has one of the strongest bottle bills in the country, and as a result of LD 56, it is even stronger. On January 1, 2019, a deposit of five cents will be charged for every ‘nip’ liquor bottle in an effort to reduce litter. The bill passed the legislature by large margins and was vetoed by the governor. The legislature overrode the veto, and the override votes are scored here. YES IS THE PRO ENVIRONMENT VOTE
Status: Bill vetoed by governor; veto override successful.
