CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2013–2014 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 991


Introduced by Assembly Member Hueso

February 22, 2013


An act to amend Section 200 of the Fish and Game Code, relating to the Fish and Game Commission.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 991, as introduced, Hueso. Fish and Game Commission.
The California Constitution establishes the Fish and Game Commission and provides for the delegation to the commission of powers relating to the protection and propagation of fish and game. Existing statutory law delegates to the commission the power to regulate the taking or possession of birds, mammals, fish, amphibia, and reptiles in accordance with prescribed laws. Existing law excepts from that statutory delegation the power to regulate the taking, possessing, processing, or use of fish, amphibia, kelp, or other aquatic plants for commercial purposes.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to the statutory provisions concerning the commission’s delegated power.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 200 of the Fish and Game Code is amended to read:

200.
 (a) There is hereby delegated to the commission the power to regulate the taking or possession of birds, mammals, fish, amphibia amphibians, and reptiles to the extent and in the manner prescribed in this article.

No

(b) No power is delegated to the commission by this article to regulate the taking, possessing, processing, or use of fish, amphibia amphibians, kelp, or other aquatic plants for commercial purposes, and no provision of this code relating or applying thereto, nor any regulation of the commission made pursuant to such that provision, shall be affected by this article or any regulation made under this article.
