Amend the bill by inserting after the title and before the enacting clause the following:
‘Emergency preamble. Whereas, acts and resolves of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and
Whereas, this legislation needs to take effect before the expiration of the 90-day period in order for its provisions to take effect before the 2019 deer hunting season; 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,’
Amend the bill by striking out everything after the enacting clause and inserting the following:
‘Sec. 1. 12 MRSA §11109-A, sub-§2, as amended by PL 2011, c. 252, §1 and affected by §2, is repealed.
Sec. 2. 12 MRSA §11109-A, sub-§2-A is enacted to read:
Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this legislation takes effect when approved.’
Amend the bill by relettering or renumbering any nonconsecutive Part letter or section number to read consecutively.
This amendment replaces the bill and adds an emergency preamble and an emergency clause. It specifies that a person who obtains a super pack license also receives an antlerless deer permit under certain conditions and the opportunity to enter a bonus antlerless-only deer permit lottery. It also allows a super pack licensee to enter an antlerless deer permit lottery if that person does not obtain an antlerless deer permit under certain conditions specified in law.
