BILL NUMBER:S4981

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the
management of hickory shad

PURPOSE:
To extend the Department of Environmental Conservation's (DEC)
authority to manage hickory shad.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would extend DEC's authority to fix, by regulation,
management measures for hickory shad in State waters until December
31, 2014.

JUSTIFICATION:
DEC's regulatory authority over hickory shad is necessary in order to
preserve the current regulatory program. Failure to extend the
existing regulatory authority by December 31, 2011 will result in the
loss of regulatory protection of these species. Moreover, regulatory
authority is critical for New York State to maintain compliance with
Fishery Management Plans for important marine and anadromous fish
species along the coast. Failure to make necessary regulatory changes
required by Fishery Management Plans places New York in jeopardy of
closure of commercial and recreational fisheries. Finally, ECL
13-0105, which sets forth the State's marine fisheries conservation
and management policy shall be carried out through achievement of
certain objectives. One of these objectives is that the state's
transboundary and migratory species shall be consistent with any
inter-jurisdictional management plans, interstate or state-federal.
Regulatory authority provides the mechanism to react timely to the
ever changing fishery management plans.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
Last extended by Chapter 146 of the Laws of 2007.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the same date as the enactment as a
Chapter of the Laws of 2011 entitled, "AN ACT to amend the
environmental conservation law, in relation to the management of
Atlantic cod."
