Military Uniforms in Public School Gets Approval in House

AUGUSTA - Military and public safety personnel will soon be allowed to wear their uniforms in Maine's public high schools.

The House of Representatives approved LD 1579 by a nearly unanimous vote of 138-4 Tuesday.

 

Governor LePage submitted a similar bill last year, but was defeated, democrats saying it represented an unfunded mandate.

 

The main difference to this year's bill states personnel may not be, "denied entry to a school solely because they are wearing their uniforms."

 

LD 1579 will face the Senate in the coming days, where representatives expect it to be enacted.
