Rob Wittman Testifies on Fishery Science Improvement Act
December 1, 2011
Rob Wittman testifies before the House Natural Resources Committee about his bill, H.R. 2304, which proposes to improve federal management of major saltwater fisheries to ensure a balanced approach in the conservation and management of saltwater fish. H.R. 2304, aims to prevent forcible, undue shutdowns of fisheries caused by incomplete data as agencies face imminent deadlines imposed by current law. It amends current law to ensure utilization of sound science in decision-making by federal agencies as they regulate fish stocks.
