Bill To Require Maine Guides To Have Criminal Background Checks Dead

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A draft proposal that would require registered Maine guides to get criminal background checks before being issued a license, has been scrapped for now. The Maine Guides Association was in opposition to the proposal as it was written.

There were parts of the proposal that were too strict and it didn’t include all forms of guide services, namely white water rafting guides and camping guides.

Although this bill is over, many still think this proposal needs to be rewritten and the Maine Guides Association is willing to sit down with the necessary and right people to  work up a plan that will work for everyone.
