Fishing license, diseased animal bills move to committee

State Senator Tom Berryhill’s AB 583, which would make California fishing licenses good for a year from the date of puchase (versus the present calendar-year-only licenses) has been referred to the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee and will have a hearing April 23.

Also moving to committee is a spot bill by Assemblywoman Susan Eggman, D-Stockton. The spot bill, essentially an empty place holder, makes only non-substantive changes to a section of the Food and Agriculture Code that regulates diseased animals, particularly who is allowed to remove animals from slaughterhouse pens. Even though there’s nothing in the bill yet, it has been referred to the Assembly Committee on Agriculture.  So the question is, what will this bill actually end up doing?

Eggman is the Agriculture Committee chair. Assemblywoman Kristen Olsen, R-Modesto, is the vice chair. They are San Joaquin County’s two representatives in the Assembly.
