http://bangordailynews.com/candidate/deane-rykerson/ (He says: "The sad Republican attempt to avoid obligations to the Affordable Care Act was rejected by the courts in a few short sentences. Attempting to have fewer citizens with health insurance, rather than more, is ridiculous. A state to our south with compulsory health insurance also has the lowest rise in health care costs in the entire nation.")

Though Representative Rykerson's position on referendum question 3, specifically, is unknown, it should be noted that he voted in favor of background checks at gun shows and other restrictions in the 126th legislature (see: http://legislature.maine.gov/LawMakerWeb/rollcall.asp?ID=280046712&chamber=H&serialnumber=354; http://legislature.maine.gov/LawMakerWeb/rollcall.asp?ID=280048132&chamber=H&serialnumber=409)
