Personal Use Priority Bill to Have First Hearing Tuesday

Rep. Seaton of Homer, chair of the House Special committee on fisheries, told us that legislation sponsored by Rep. Bill Stoltze to change the priority of Personal Use fisheries in the state, will have its first hearing in the House Fisheries committee tomorrow.  Stoltze previously outlined his legislation…


Rep. Stoltze(R- Chugiak): “Our personal use fisheries in Alaska, whether they’re in Fish Creek, or Kenai, or Kasilof, or the Cooper River, there’s a hand full of other rivers where they have personal use. Before they close down personal use, which is an Alaskan resident fishery, they can’t close that down before the cut down the non-resident and other activity, you know, you hope that doesn’t come into affect, it’s partially a statement bill.”
