Smaller Legislature? 

(AP) Republican Rep. Patrick Flood’s resolution would amend the Maine Constitution to shrink the House of Representatives from 151 members to 115, and the Senate from 35 members to 31.

Flood says a smaller Legislature would save money and improve government efficiency.

Flood says he knows his bill is a long shot. If it passes through the Legislature, it would also need voter approval since it would amend the state Constitution.
