Maine: update on destruction of campaign finance reports

Last month I broke a story on how Maine towns and cities have been destroying the campaign finance disclosures of local elected officials within as soon as two years after an election....and doing it on the advice of state officials.

This story is also the subject of my bi-monthly column, Parallel 44, in the new issue of Working Waterfront. Since that piece was filed, I understand some state lawmakers are working on a bill that would prevent the destruction of these documents. [Update, 4/30/09: legislators oppose efforts to fix the problem.]
