Default Re: Rhode Island Saltwater Fishing License

Saltwater Fishing license vetoed by Governor Carcieri

Registry will begin by the feds in 2011.
Probably 25 bucks with no reciprocity.

Because of Carcieriís veto, Rhode Island joins Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Virginia and Hawaii in being required to implement federal registrations.
Some of those states are still working on state licensing.

The bill passed, 27 to 8, in the Senate, and 39 to 8 in the House.

The Governor's position is that this component of the Magnuson Act flies in the face of the Rhode Island Constitution.
