Each line has a reference to a famous Bill (person), a right from the Bill of Rights, and a specific state quarter. The Bills are in alphabetical order by last name and solvers need to use the Bill of Rights amendment number to index into this name.

Clinton3MarylandI
De Blasio2TennesseeE
Fagerbakke8VermontK
Farmer1ArkansasF
Gates2WisconsinA
Medley4MaineL
Nye1GeorgiaN
Parcells4OregonC
Watterson5UtahE

Then, solvers need to use the release date of the state quarter to rearrange the letters and get: NICKELFACE. This cluephrase indicates that the man on the nickel is the answer.
