Question 2 will add a 3% tax on incomes exceeding $200K a year in Maine. The additional tax will raise an estimated $157 million funds which will be used for K-12 education. Proponents argue that schools need the funding and those making over $200K per year can afford to pay additional taxes. Opponents including Governor Paul Le Page argue that the proposal lacks specifics on where the money would be spent.  See recent Question 2 news
