The struggle was real during the 2019 legislative session in Annapolis. Over 22 Bills were introduced that had the potential to impact the wild fishery. One of the most heart-breaking was HB 298 (cf SB 448) which Governor Hogan vetoed and the General Assembly subsequently overrode his veto. We are still waiting to see what happens with the Bill requiring a reconstitution of the Oyster Advisory Committee but the outlook is not good. Use this guide to check on the status of the other bills we were watching closely. And stay tuned for next steps in the battle to save the wild, public fishery!
