DP 11-0 (# 45)

This is what one 1307 "Nelson Bill" committee member had to say. We are trying to amend it to include a 3rd 10 day license, put
the zones back in, put language in that mandates the Gov look at a formula (HPC II) when picking the amount of licenses available up to the 10,000 mark for the first 3 seasons. This would balance the season and actually work better for all involved than a straight HPC II concept.

Public Trust
"The keystone for protecting the public's resources under the public trust doctrine is that the State must administer its trust interests consistent with trust purposes and values. The duties imposed upon the State are those of a trustee, not simply the duties of a business manager trying to cut a deal. The key to carrying out the public trust duties of the State are its powers to regulate as well as protect the State's fundamental rights in trust properties and the use of those properties."
