Homeless Protection Bill Wins Senate Enactment
Legislation sent to Governor Baldacci for consideration
The Maine Senate enacted a bill on March 30th that would crack down on the growing problem of violence against homeless people in Maine. The proposal would update Maine laws to allow judges the ability to increase sentences for criminals found guilty of attacking a homeless person. Current law already offers such added protections for people based on religion, age and sexual orientation.
Senator Michael Brennan of Portland sponsored the bill.

LD 2046 is the product of a new law passed last year that asked Maine Attorney General Steven Rowe to convene a working group to offer suggestions for addressing violence against homeless people. The legislation was based on the recommendations of the working group formed by Rowe.
