Jones Amendment to Block Spending on Catch Shares Passes House of Representatives

WASHINGTON - Feb. 19, 2011 (Saving Seafood) - Amendment #548 to H.R. 1 sponsored by Walter Jones (R-North Carolina) and cosponsored by Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) and Frank Pallone (D-New Jersey) passed the United States House of Representatives on a recorded vote of 259-159 at 1:43 a.m.


The Amendment would prevent funds from being expended by NOAA to enact new limited access fishing programs. The Amendment, if H.R. 1 is passed by the Senate and signed into law, would prevent spending on new catch shares programs.


51 Democrats joined 208 Republicans voting in favor of the Amendment.


Amendment No. 548 to H.R. 1 would ensure that no funds made available in the continuing resolution may be used to develop or approve new limited access privilege programs for any fishery under the jurisdiction of the South Atlantic, Mid-Atlantic, New England or Gulf of Mexico Fishery Managment Councils.


This would prevent further spending on "Catch Shares" programs, a heavily-promoted fisheries policy of the Obama Administration under Dr. Jane Lubchenco's leadership at NOAA. The policy, backed by several environmental groups, has been controversial. The Catch Shares policy has faced widespread opposition by East Coast fishermen.


The Amendment does not affect fishing programs on the West Coast or Alaska .

Never been much of a Barney Frank fan but I am going to call his office and thank them on Monday, I will also call Clyburn and tell his staff what I think about them NOT supporting this. This is good news!!

Barney could invent a cure for cancer and I would still hate the prick. By far one of the most arrogant and loathsome legislators out there. Don't even get me started with the Fannie and Freddi fiasco.

Passed the United States House of Representatives on a recorded vote of 259-159..

Thanks to all who made phone calls and send in emails and faxes. The fight is not over...


Now we need to be on the phone plus sending emails and faxes to our Senators and Senators from other States too to support the Senate Amendment to Block Spending on Catch Shares...

Kudos too Rep Jones for making this amendment.

Kudos to Rep Franks for standing up and Opposing Catch Shares...

Now we need to call and set Rep Moran from VA. That Catch Shares are bad for us. On the commercial side Catch Shares are a bad idea because the INC's and Fishhouse owners will wind up owning all the shares. The little will get screwed! You can tell that EDF got to him the last few days, by the way he talks... Here is his phone number we need to still burn up his phone to keep him from talking about what EDF told him... Rep Moran 202-225-4376

Senate Contact info

Area code for DC is (202). Just follow the directions on the top of each of the above to get full phone number for each guy's D.C. office.

Thanks
Keith

Thanks for the list. It looks like the only one for Long Island, NY who voted for it was Peter King-R; not surprising since Ackerman & Maloney are left wing loones.

Jackson Lee from Texas is too dumb to share air with the rest of us. She wants to sell F16's to Venezula and doesn't know the diffference between Vietnam and Korea
