PostSubject: bill ideas..   Mon Jul 23, 2012 5:02 pm

I'm in a Youth in Government class/club this year and I need some bill ideas to present. Was hoping for an aquarium/reefing/aquaculture/ichthy-related law that needs to be removed/modified/created.

Any ideas?

I saw on FB a petition against the navy testing sonar because it kills/harms and deafens thousands of dolphins and whales. Dunno the accuracy of it though.

Overfishing is a good one. Also collection rights. Should we ban? Protect certain areas? Place quantity/specie requirements? Ban certain collection practices (like cyanide)? Etc...

I know this is a little off topic but your comment made me think of something I saw a while back that is interesting: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/05/120508151954.htm

On a more on topic note, I agree with the overfishing idea, I think that's the most popular controversy right now. Hmm maybe something with underwater drilling. That's also pretty popular after the drama a couple years ago.

You might be able to find items on beach dredging. I know they are doing a larger area across st. pete beaches

Everyone else gave great suggestions, and Im not sure how this would playout in class, but there are currently no bon-fires allowed on Public (read State or County) beaches. Pretty disappointing for someone who wanted a birthday beach bonfire. Just sayin. haha

I can't blame you on that! I've always wanted a bon-fire on the beach, that would be great!
