Default "Pots Off the Reefs" Bill moves out of Committee...

S221 Prohibits the use of certain fishing gear on artificial reefs.

Unanimously passed by the Senate Environment & Energy Committee this morning. A statement was made early that I think we need a bigger room! A standing room only hearing room was witnessed once again to a unanimous decision to pass the bill on to the full Senate, where in two previous sessions; it received 32 votes each time. Now it's on to the Assembly for another battle.

This is what's next:

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2010

SENATE SESSION 2:00 PM Senate Chambers
Voting Session: Time and Board List to be announced


Unfortunately:

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2010 (continued)

*ASSEMBLY QUORUM
The Assembly Quorum has been CANCELED. C & D Committees will not meet.

The Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee is in Group D.


Unless they can get their "act" together, this will possibly be the next time A1152 may be heard by the Assembly Committee:

MONDAY, MARCH 8, 2010

ASSEMBLY QUORUM Assembly Chambers
10:00 AM: Group (C) Committees scheduled to meet
2:00 PM: Group (D) Committees scheduled to meet
