Maine Senate OKs concealed weapons confidentiality


The Maine Senate has agreed with the House and voted to approve a bill that allows personal information on concealed weapons permits to be kept confidential. The Senate voted 27 to 8 in favor of the bill Wednesday, a day after the House passed the measure by an overwhelming majority. The bill still faces final House and Senate votes. In both chambers, lawmakers turned back 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.
