Whereas, the trap limit in the Swans Island Lobster Conservation Area is 550 per individual and Zone B allows 800 traps per individual; and

Whereas, in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 12 MRSA 6482, sub- 1, A, as enacted by PL 2013, c. 342, 1, is amended to read:

A. An individual registered to obtain Swans Island Lobster Conservation Area trap tags under this section may not place or maintain in the Swans Island Lobster Conservation Area more than 550 600 traps. Each trap must bear the appropriate tag.

Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this legislation takes effect when approved.
