AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A bill to make fireworks illegal again in Maine is among those being sent to committee for further review as lawmakers get a look at the first wave of bills to be considered this year.

Among the other bills also being assigned to committees Tuesday are proposals to stop the sale of corn-based ethanol in Maine if at least two other New England states do the same thing, and a proposed constitutional amendment to reduce the size of the Legislature.

Hundreds of other proposals, which were also submitted before the deadline earlier this month, have yet to be drafted.

Among them are proposals to allow municipalities to seek proof of residency for General Assistance, to establish a presidential primary and to create an animal abuse offender registry.
