CHAPTER 20-8

Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Compact

SECTION 20-8-2



   § 20-8-2  Amendment of compact. –

The state of Rhode Island hereby enters into an amendment of the Atlantic

States Marine Fisheries Compact, § 20-8-1, with any one or more of the

states of Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New

Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia,

and Florida or such other states as may become party to that compact for the

purpose of permitting the states that ratify this amendment to establish joint

regulation of specific fisheries common to those states through the Atlantic

states marine fisheries commission and their representatives on that body.

Notice of intention to withdraw from this amendment shall be executed and

transmitted by the governor and shall be in accordance with article XII of the

Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Compact, § 20-8-1, and shall be effective

as to this state with those states which similarly ratify this amendment. This

amendment shall take effect as to this state with respect to any other of the

above-mentioned states as to take similar action.



   AMENDMENT NO. 1 OF THE ATLANTIC STATES MARINE FISHERIES

COMPACT

   The states consenting to this amendment agree that any two or

more of them may designate the Atlantic states marine fisheries commission as a

joint regulatory agency with such powers as they may jointly confer from time

to time for the regulation of the fishing operations of the citizens and

vessels of such designating states with respect to specific fisheries in which

such states have a common interest. The representatives of such states on the

Atlantic states marine fisheries commission shall constitute a separate section

of such commission for the exercise of the additional powers so granted

provided that the states so acting shall appropriate additional funds for this

purpose. The creation of such section as a joint regulatory agency shall not

deprive the states participating therein of any of their privileges or powers

or responsibilities in the Atlantic states marine fisheries commission under

the general compact.
