Mass Republican Candidates Sean Bielat – Daniel Botelho Site Over Regulation of Fishing Industry on Campaign Trail

9th Congressional District race, Daniel Botelho of Fall River. Within the new 9th District, Botelho wants less regulation of the fishing  industry, including more generous catch limits. He says the area’s commercial fishing will collapse if current regulations  are kept.

Bielat said the over-regulation is a byproduct of an expansion of the federal  bureaucracy. “When your job is to create regulations all the time, that’s what you’re  going to do,” he said. According to Bielat, these officials are not very responsive to change,  creating a situation in which regulations do not reflect reality. He cited the  current state of the fishing industry in Massachusetts as an example. “Fishermen have the greatest incentive to make sure their (fish) stocks  remain,” he said. “We have record stocks, but they can’t fish them. It’s an  overregulated industry — it’s destroying jobs and making fish cost more.”
