Following up on Patrick's June25th post: HR.200 vote was postponed a few days, maybe till tomorrow. You still have time to register your opposition to HR.200 and your support for more prudent and scientific management of fish stocks. Just go to: https://fish-management.blogspot.com/
and do the ONE thing in the top right corner. TomR

A bill in the U.S. House will be harmful to Connecticut's birds.
Monday, June 25 - A bill being voted on tomorrow by the U.S. House of Representatives has the potential to do great harm to birds in Connecticut and beyond.
The bill is H.R. 200. It would change the very successful Magnuson-Stevens Act to allow fishermen to take more fish than the law currently allows.
Please call your House member and ask him or her to VOTE NO!
H.R. 200 could lead to long-term drops in the number of birds that rely on fish as a primary food source.
Birds such as loons, herons, egrets, Ospreys, and Bald Eagles, which have become such an important part of Connecticut's environment in recent years. ======================= _______________________________________________ This list is provided by the Connecticut Ornithological Association (COA) for the discussion of birds and birding in Connecticut.
