1981, c. 693, §§5,8 (NEW).
The identity of the persons making this decision is kept under cover in this article and video.

In 1995 The Maine State Legislature granted itself jurisdiction over educational matters at the University of Maine and since at least 2002 there has been a minor in Marxist and Socialists Studies at the University of Maine. Marx was an atheist. The Communist regime in the Soviet Union confiscated religious property and ridiculed religion.
1. Legislature to contract with university. The Legislature, through the joint standing committee of the Legislature having jurisdiction over education matters, shall contract with the University of Maine System to establish and maintain the institute.(emphasis mine)
