Thread: ME Non-Res renewal
I applied for my ME Non-Res renewal in October. I noticed the check was cashed in early December. I have expired on Jan, 1 2012. I'm still waiting. Does anyone know if the state is running behind? I'll think I'm going to call this week.
Another quick question, I was reading the laws and it seems that a permit doesnt expire if a person applies and it awaiting correspondence. Until the applicant heres if he or she was accepted or denied in writing the permit stays active? Heading to ME tomorrow, can I carry?
I complained to my state Senator about the time it is taking. This is the response:
I spoke with the Maine State Police this afternoon. I was told due to the volume of claims it is near impossible to get the claims out by 30 days.

It takes time, but I ensure you the State Police are doing their best to get these processed as quickly as possible.

I have heard whispers of revising the statute to 120 days for residents and 150 days for for non residents. Watch out for what you wish for.
