Press release from Rep. Paul Tine – opposes H 983 – 2013 Fisheries Economic Development Act

Representative Tine announced today that he strongly opposes House Bill 983 entitled, 2013 Fisheries Economic Development Act.  “This bill is a thinly-veiled effort by special interests to accomplish one thing, to eliminate commercial fishermen from catching Trout, Rockfish, and Drum,” said Representative Tine. “Commercial fishing is vital to our economy; we should be focused on finding ways to support our commercial fishing industry rather than adding new limitations and regulations.” continued
