HB484 Passes Senate

HB484, the Fishery Association ( read SRA) Reimbursement bill, just passed the Senate last night. Now it awaits House concurrence on a minor amendment and then on the the Governor for signing.

Thanks to those of you who helped with this and also with HB218. The calls, the letters, the emails, they are all a part of the program. This is how actual fisheries politics works. This is why SEAS is an exceptional investment in good politics and good public policy.

And of course a special thanks to Rep. Peggy Wilson and her staff, all of her staff, including Becky Rooney but particularly the 2 who worked on this specifically, Jean Ellis and Linda Miller.

Session ends tomorrow night at midnight. I'll keep you informed just to make sure that the technical moves are made so that this really gets through the legislature.

good day
