Somers introduces bill to help Stonington fishermen

State Sen. Heather Somers, R-18th District, has introduced a bill that she said Sunday would help Stonington fishermen stay afloat amid the sea of federal and state regulations that are hurting their businesses. The bill is scheduled to have a public hearing before the legislature’s Environment Committee on Friday. It would let Connecticut enter into agreements with bordering states to allow commercial fishermen from Connecticut to legally carry fish earmarked for one state into another state’s port without penalty — making the schedules and lives of fishermen economically and logistically easier. >click to read<08:18
