They've made their move. HB733 is it.
Opponents of marine conservation today hijacked HB733 by Rep. Jack Smith in conference committee. The bill originally dealt with yo-yo fishing devices. Now it deals with gill nets -- and it allows gill net usage at night.

As you know, this battle over this issue was fought many weeks ago. And we won.

Our opponents are using covert tactics at the 11th hour to win this one by hook or by crook.

You can help stop this.

Click the continue button below (AOL users copy and paste the link into your browser) to alert your state representative and state senator to these shenanigans.

Thank you for your continued vigilance and support of CCA.

Good news!! On a vote of 64 - 35, the Louisiana House killed an 11th-hour attempt by commercial interests to allow nighttime use of gill nets. This attempt was made by hijacking HB733.

Given the intensity of Friday's battle, we expect them to make another attempt to hijack a different bill before the session adjourns Monday. (The bills available to them are HB201 by Rep. Carla Dartez, D-Morgan City and HB1711 by Rep. Ernest Wooten, D-Belle Chasse.)

The CCA is on guard. Please be vigilant with us.

In this morning's battle, Rep. Warren Triche, D-Chackbay, championed the issue for marine conservation in his remarks to the House. To see the official record of how your state representative voted on HB733

http://www.legis.state.la.us/leg_docs/04RS/CVT3/OUT/0000LSKW.PDF

Rep. Triche's motion was to return to the calendar the report of the conference committee on the hijacked HB733. So a 'yes' vote supported CCA's position; a 'no' vote supported gill netting.

Two-thirds of the House (70 of the 105 members) would now have to vote to take up debate on HB733 for it to be revisited this year. Bottom line: HB733 is dead for the session.

However, the other two bills - HB201 and HB1711 - could still be hijacked by our opponents.

CCA asks that you call for your representative at (225-342-2040) and leave him a message 1) thanking him for his support if he sided with conservation and 2) encouraging him to watch out for HB201 and HB1711.

Please continue to keep a watchful eye until final adjournment on Monday, June 21.



NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED HERE?

I just got this email from Steve Scalise:


Mr. Schober,

Thanks for your e-mail regarding HB733. I agree with you that the proliferation of gill nets will severely hamper the fish stocks for our sport fishermen, and that is why I have always opposed the use of gill nets.
You will be happy to know the bill just came up for a vote and I joined in returning the bill to the calender - effectively killing it for the session! I appreciate your input.

Steve Scalise

Subject: Please reject conference committee report on HB733


Dear Representative Scalise:

Nighttime usage of gill nets is a bad idea. It has been debated and killed in every legislative session since 1997. And it was killed this year too.

Opponents of marine conservation have drastically altered HB733 in conference committee to make it allow gill net usage at night.

Please vote to reject the conference committee report on HB733. I would consider it a personal favor.

Thank you for your support of conservation.



Sincerely,
