AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Despite Gov. Paul LePage's differences with the lawmakers over major issues including the budget and Medicaid expansion, he's still keeping busy signing bills sent to him by the Democratic-majority Legislature.

On recently signed measure will exempt active-duty military members who are stationed outside of the United States and home on leave from having to take a hunter safety course to obtain a hunting license.

A law addressing a revolving door of legislators who become lobbyists will bar  a person who's served as a legislator from engaging in activities that would require registration as a lobbyist or lobbyist associate until one year after that person's term as a Legislator ends.

Another law broadens the form of payment allowed by scrap metal dealers to payment by credit card or debit. Current law only allows checks.
