definition.                                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
MR. POUND  explained that "physically interfering"  was a concern                                                               
that Senator  Guess brought up  regarding people who  were combat                                                               
fishing. She was concerned that people  would be able to sue each                                                               
other for  perceived infractions,  specifically if a  person were                                                               
to accidentally  cause another  person to lose  a fish  that they                                                               
had hooked.  He said the bill  relates to cutting trap  lines and                                                               
it  would have  no  effect on  sport fishing.  In  response to  a                                                               
suggestion  he received,  he said  the committee  should add  the                                                               
word "with" on page 2 line 4.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
9:06:49 AM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR GENE  THERRIAULT moved Amendment 1.  Section 1, Paragraph                                                               
3, add  the word "with"  after "physically  interfering." Hearing

SENATOR  CHARLIE HUGGINS  asked  whether  the question  regarding                                                               
commercial fishing was resolved.

bill.
