SPONSORS MEMO:

NEW YORK STATE SENATE

INTRODUCER'S MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT

submitted in accordance with Senate Rule VI. Sec 1

BILL NUMBER: S6453

SPONSOR: LIBOUS

TITLE OF BILL:

An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to

authorizing angling by a single individual with up to three lines

PURPOSE:

This legislation would authorize an individual to angle for fish with up

to 3 lines.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Amends section 11-0103 of the Environmental Conservation Law to change

the number of lines one person may operate from not more than two to not

more than three, with or without rod.

JUSTIFICATION:

This new 3-rod rule is designed to favorably impact a fisherman's expe-

rience by increasing his probability of catching a fish. Catching a fish

enhances angler satisfaction more than any other factor and is the prime

determinant in deciding whether or not to make return visits to the

fisheries of New York.

Return visits to the fishery are a boon to the local economies. Return

trips mean more money spent locally for fuel, food, lodging, launches,

parking, and rentals.

The 3-rod rule will not guarantee that people catch more fish; rather it

will give them the potential to locate the fish a little easier. The

small crewed boats, the 'weekend warrior', the recreationalist, the

vacationer, the retired couple who have saved up for a boat and now have

the time and health to use it will all benefit from this.

It does not mean they must use 3 rods, it will mean they can use 3 rods

per person, whether they are operated from land or from a boat, if they

so choose. New Jersey and Michigan both have a 3-rod rule, to which they

have continued to see a favorable impact to their recreational fisher-

man.

In addition, the 3-rod rule will not exploit the fishery since exploita-

tion is constrained by creel limits that would still be in effect.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.

I definitely like the bill as submitted by Senator Libous. This bill shows no favoritism to any one group or location.3.gif

We received a note from Senator Libous about the proposed change to 3 rods/person.He says that there will most likely be no further action on the bill until after the budget is passed.The Senator also said that they are working on a sponser in the Assembly and beleives that they are close.....Zeke & Cyn(Strike 3)

Here is an overview on the progress with the LOU 3 rod/Person proposal.            S6453 was introduced by Senator Tom Libous and passed in the Senate (57-0)in June.            Was sent to the Assembly and sponcered by Assemblywomen Addie Russell-A10382            On June 18,the bill was sent to the EnCon Committee.            It still sits there as of today.Legislative session is over for 2010 and A10382 will not come up for a vote.The 3 Rod/person bill will have to be reintroduced in the Assembly in Jan 2011.All seats are up for election in November so the EnCon Committee membership will likely change.If Assemblywomen Russell wins her election bid and returns to Albany,we wil ask her to reintroduce her bill................Zeke & Cyn(Strike 3)
