LD 578, introduced by state Senator Roger Katz (R-Kennebec), would provide a municipal legislative body with the authority to adopt an ordinance that restricts the carrying of firearms in the municipality's essential municipal offices and places of legislative assembly just as the State imposes those restrictions in its capitol area.
