The Maine House has overwhelmingly approved a bill that allows personal information on concealed weapons permits to be kept confidential. Representatives voted 106 to 40 Tuesday in favor of the bill, following the recommendation of the Judiciary Committee’s majority. The bill, which faces further votes, also calls for release of statistical information about concealed weapons permits. The House rejected an amendment that would have kept permit records open except for certain protected groups, such as police officers, judges, prosecutors, and those protected by court orders.
