Maine Self-Storage Operators Win Delay in Proposed Legislation


Self-storage legislation recently proposed in Maine has been tabled for at least one year, giving facility operators time to work on a bill that makes more sense for self-storage businesses and the state. SP 130, LD 366, relating to the abandonment of records by tenants, was voted "ought not to pass" in a workshop session on March 17.
If passed, “An Act to Protect Confidential Consumer Records in Self-Service Storage Facilities,” would require extensive administrative procedures on the part of self-storage operators in the state. Legislators asked the local self-storage community to suggest alternative language for a new law. The Maine Self Storage Association has agreed to poll its membership, explore options and formulate a bill to be presented in the second session of the legislature.
