House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: March 13, 2017 10:18 AM
From: Representative Doyle Heffley
To: All House members
Subject: Amending Clean Streams Law
Pennsylvania is home to more than 160 fish hatcheries which help provide for trout stocking programs, fishing recreation, jobs and revenue, and a sustainable food source for our residents. However, environmental regulations in the Commonwealth have created extreme difficulties for these operations, yet they can operate with little impact on our creeks and streams.
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that would exempt hatcheries built more than 20 years ago in the most rural areas of the Commonwealth from these regulations. This will allow us to continue to balance the protection of our environment with the protection of our small hatchery businesses.
Please join me in cosponsoring this piece of legislation.

Introduced as HB1459
