HB 983 Will Not Run This Session
May 30, 2013 — Representative Tine announced today that House Bill 983, entitled The Fisheries Economic Development Act, will not be run this session. “I spoke with the bill sponsor this evening after the bill was considered in the majority caucus and he assured me the bill will not be run or folded into the budget,” said Representative Tine. “It was truly a bipartisan effort to defeat the bill and it would not have happened without all the work of the opponents who made sure their voice would be heard in Raleigh.”
After growing opposition, the bill sponsor sought the will of the Republican Caucus and found that opposition there, combined with a significant number of votes in the Democratic Caucus, would make it difficult for the bill to move through committee.
