House Bill 1979
« on: March 27, 2015, 05:14:35 AM »
I have emailed out a letter from Randi Wayland with a document attached expressing opposition to HB 1979 to all board members and club contacts. This bill is asking the state legislature to make an exception to the state length limit for a special group of fishermen. This type of decision should not be legislated but should be based on science. This is something that a state biologist should decide after studying the fishery. We have some of the best and brightest in the Texas Parks and wildlife Department and we need to let them do their job. If this bill passes then what organization or individual will be next to want to legislate preferential treatment on some other regulation or law. The state of Texas already has special length limits on many bodies of water throughout the state, but these were set by the TP&W department based of studies and shock survey results. Lets let our biologists do their jobs and leave the politics out of our fisheries. Here is a link to find your representative. http://www.senate.state.tx.us/75r/Senate/senmem.htm and http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/Members/Members.aspx?Chamber=H
