The report was signed by Representative Johnson, Co-chair, with the following individual recommendations: Do pass (4): Tuck, Edgmon, P. Wilson, Johnson No recommendation (1): Olson Amend (2): Kawasaki, Seaton A House Resources Committee letter of intent for HB 365, signed by Representatives Johnson and Neuman, Co-chairs, follows: "The House Resources Committee recognizes that passage of provisions in HB 365 is a necessary step to enable a planned permit buyback program in the Southeast Alaska Salmon Seine fishery to move forward. Further, while the committee recognizes the value of reducing the number of permits in the Southeast Salmon Seine fishery, it is also concerned that the permit buyback program not remove more permits than necessary for the health and viability of the fishery, nor result in negative economic impacts to the region or state, including diminishment of the economic benefits of the investments that have been made in Southeast Alaska communities. Specifically, the committee is passing this legislation with the understanding, and the assurance of the Southeast Revitalization Association, that the permit reduction program the association seeks to undertake for the Southeast Alaska Salmon Seine fishery and to implement through the provisions of this bill will not reduce the number of permits in that fishery to less than 260." 2010-04-11 House Journal Page 2166 The following fiscal note(s) apply: 1.
