"Sponsors of three bills to cut back the size of the Maine Legislature say it's time for the state to economize as lawmakers ask others to do the same. Republican and Democratic lawmakers say Maine has one of the smallest state populations, but the 10th largest legislature. ... Maine's Legislature now has 186 members, and the bills would reduce its size by different amounts." [editor's note: Seems like it attacks a symptom instead of a problem; a larger group's harder to slip something past, though easier to stampede! The issue is the shrinking of power-blocs - SAT] (04/25/11)
