The referendum was passed by voters in Maine, so it looks like plans for the state to purchase the trackage up for abandonment will be proceeding.

From today's Progressive Railroading:

6/10/2010 State Funding

Voters approve bonds to preserve Montreal, Maine & Atlantic line
On Tuesday, Maine voters approved a bond referendum that will provide $47.8 million for railroad, marine and highway facilities. The referendum includes funds to help preserve 240 miles of the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway Ltd.’s track in Aroostook County.
