What is going on with this bill ? What stayed and what new amendments are really there now ?

HB 1224 - (Introduced by Rep's Porter, Bernstein, Drovdal, Herbel; Senator Tollefson) - Would amend the North Dakota Century Code to allow only floating crafts powered by an electric motor or battery to be used to take or retrieve ducks or geese. Motorized boats other than those powered by an electric motor or battery would not be able to be used. HNRC amended to carry out a program that targets waterfowl resting areas within the private lands initiative program which includes payments to private landowners for lease of waterfowl resting areas on private lands that during the term of the lease provides limited public access for the hunting of waterfowl. Passed house 93-0. Bill in senate.

It says that former ND residents who hunt primarily in SE ND may only hunt waterfowl on the third Wednesday of November between 2:00 and 2:45 pm. :D

Here's the bill language. Pretty broad, but the intent is to give the G&F a tool to use PLI money to set up waterfowl rest areas. Except for it's pressure mitigation goal, it represents nothing of the original bill (the folks in Bismarck call that a "Hog House").
