BILL NUMBER:S4966

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to taking fish
fixed by regulation

PURPOSE:
To extend the Department of Environmental Conservation's (DEC)
authority to regulate fish.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would extend DEC's regulatory authority for fish in State
waters until December 31, 2014.

JUSTIFICATION:
ECL § 11-1303 authorizes DEC to set open seasons, size and
catch limits and manner of taking of all species of fish, except
marine fish. If this authority is not extended beyond the current
sunset date of December 31, 2011 the existing regulations on the
seasons, manner of taking, etc. for freshwater fish would no longer
be enforceable and there would be no oversight of the taking of
freshwater fish in State waters. By extending DEC's authority to
regulate freshwater fish, this bill would assure continuity of the
protection of the State's fish resources.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
Last extended by Chapter 256 of the laws of 2007.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
