Maine: Judiciary Committee to Hear Important Handgun Permit Confidentiality Legislation on Tuesday
Posted on March 7, 2013
Legislative Document 576, temporary emergency Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) confidentiality legislation, was enacted in Augusta today. LD 576, sponsored by state Senator Troy Jackson (D-35), passed overwhelmingly by a 33-0 vote in the state Senate and by a 129-11 vote in the state House of Representatives. Shortly thereafter, Governor Paul LePage (R) signed LD 576 into law, effectively granting immediate privacy protection for all CHP holders. This measure is effective until April 30, 2013.
