An Act To Establish a Bag Limit for Brook Trout on Portions of Webster Stream in Piscataquis County

Emergency preamble. Whereas,  acts and resolves of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and

Whereas,  the daily bag limit for brook trout established in this legislation for portions of Webster Stream in Piscataquis County needs to take effect prior to the fall fishing season for the proper fishery management of brook trout in those portions of Webster Stream; and

Whereas,  in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 12 MRSA §12458, sub-§2  is enacted to read:

2 Webster Stream.   Between August 16th and September 30th annually, there is a daily bag limit of one brook trout for Webster Stream in Piscataquis County from the Telos Lake dam downstream to Webster Lake.

Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this legislation takes effect when approved.

Effective 90 days following adjournment of the 127th Legislature, First Regular Session, unless otherwise indicated.
