Two bills, LD 466 and LD 1302, both titled An Act to Increase Competition and Ensure a Robust Information and Telecommunications Market, were carried over by the EUT Committee last session. The bills have been combined by a stakeholder committee, along with LD 879, and will continue as LD 466.

Service-animal imposters face crackdown

AUGUSTA - People who falsely pass off their pets as service animals think of the woman in Wisconsin last year who claimed the right bring her kangaroo into McDonald's have frustrated people with legitimate needs to such an extent that legislators in several states are considering laws to restore the animals' credibility.

Legislatures in Maine, Virginia, Arizona, Hawaii, New York, and Puerto Rico are considering bills that would either establish such a program or penalize people who fraudulently claim to have service dogs.

In Maine, a task force this month issued a report that says well-meaning federal laws designed to protect people with disabilities have instead opened the door to fraud.

Man who fled crash turns self in

MANCHESTER The man Maine State Police were looking for after he reportedly fled from a high speed chase and crashed turned himself into authorities.

On Feb. 4, a car driven by Steven N. Black crashed after being involved in two high-speed chases with both State and Winthrop Police. Police had been looking for Black after troopers tracked along the shore and on the ice of Cobbossee Lake for several hours early that morning. The tracks then led back to the Pond Road.

A state trooper first attempted to pull Black's car over on Route 202 in Manchester and after it reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour, the trooper broke off the pursuit. Later, Winthrop Police attempted to stop the car along Routes 135 and 202 and officers lost track of the car on the Pond Road. A short time later, troopers found the Pontiac Grand Am had crashed into a tree on a nearby camp road near the West Gardiner town line. With the help of a State Police dog, troopers followed tracks along and on the ice of Cobbossee Lake for over five miles.
