charter IFQ
Posted by AKCAPT on Mar 20 2005
Shawn,

I wouldn't rely on those national groups for any lawsuit. It is going to have to come from within the state. NACO does not take sides on regional issues and IGFA does't file law suits. That leaves RFA and last time they came up here, my understanding is that they were left with an unpaid legal bill.

Also it would be best to write to the federal politicians and secraty of commerece. Right now it is in the hands of the feds.

I think the suggestion by fish on is probably a good one. The local group with over 100 charter operators as members will have to get the lawyer and raise the 100K to file a federal challange.

Even that is no real guarntee that there is a decent case. The NMFS legal people have spent months checking this over. If they thought it wouldn't pass legal muster, they would have sent it back to the council.

I really hope they missed something and it can be over turned.

Too bad the 100 charters in this group were not at the Council meetings when this was suggested in the first place. It would have been much easier to get rid of it before the Council passed it.
