Maine Moves Closer to Adopting the National SAFE MLO Test

Explore:  SAFE Act SAFE MLO


Last month, Maine state lawmakers passed legislation that became law without Governor Paul LePage's signature that removed statutory language to facilitate the adoption of the Uniform State Test (UST) by the Maine Bureau of Financial Institutions. The legislation also removed references to specific topics that were required to be covered in pre-licensing education, testing, and continuing education for mortgage loan originators (MLOs).

As we previously reported, 39 state regulators have adopted the UST. In addition to Maine, California (Senate Bill 1459) and Ohio (House Bill 483) are also considering legislation that would implement the UST.
