CT Saltwater Recreational Angling License sign now

Whereas, House Bill 7124 contains a provision establishing a licensing requirement for the marine district in the State of Connecticut, and

Whereas, the recreational saltwater fishery has traditionally been license free, and

Whereas, the issues of interstate reciprocity, compliance with the requirements of the federal Magnuson Stevens act, and a detailed plan for disposition of raised revenue have not yet been resolved, and

Whereas, the issue of the impact of such a licensing requirement upon the state's economy has not yet been studied,

Now therefore, we respectfully request the Connecticut General Assembly not to pass a bill containing a recreational saltwater angling license provision, and the Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection to retract support for said bill until the 2008 legislative session, when adequate time for information gathering and input from the angling community has been afforded.

    Town East Lyme Poorly conceived and inadequately explained, particularly where the license revenue will go. I'm generally opposed to paying a fee to the state for fishing in waters which the state does not participate to any significant degree in resourc
