You need to be aware that the F&G Commission Meeting on April 21 is not the Public Hearing for comment on fish rule proposals it is the regular monthly meeting. Once a public hearing is scheduled the date and time will be published. As in past years the public hearing is scheduled to begin during the evening hours to accomodate those who work during the day.
To Steve Perry
I appreciate the fact that this hearing will be held in the evening hours. I was hoping that was the case, since all of the waterfowl hearings I attend are also evening events. Can you give us an idea of a typical agenda, ie: are there announcements, discussion, is discussion solicited from the public in attendance? In other words, will we be able to comment on the proposals on the table and will there be enough time for all to do so who wish to before a vote/decision?
Thank you very much for taking the time to post on this board - as you no doubt already know we are very interested in the process and how we can affect the outcome.
The process the Department follows for proposed changes to fishing rules is in accordance with state statute RSA 541-A. Under RSA 541-A:11 Public Hearing and Comment. –
