Palmer Supports Law That Helps Alabama Fisherman


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Gary Palmer voted for H.R. 1335, "The Strengthening Communities and Increasing Flexibility in Fisheries Management Act" (Magnuson-Stevens Reauthorization) and says the following:

"Fishing is important in Alabama, both for commerce and for recreation. This bill will provide for more opportunities for Alabamians to have a stronger voice in the process of deciding how our fisheries are managed by replacing the current one-size-fits-all approach to a state managed approach by requiring state and local data in decision-making. The bill also extends, from 3 miles to 9 miles, the control of state fisheries over red snapper stocks. These improvements will be an economic boon to Alabama's fisherman as well as the public consumer."

This bill requires no additional federal spending. Additionally, the bill has support of fisherman, as well as the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
