Rep. Joe Orgeron’s HB 1033 earns strong bi-partisan support. Now moves to Senate.
On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed House Bill 1033 by Representative Joe Orgeron, a bill that will require regular reporting on menhaden harvested in Louisiana state waters, and will create an annual catch limit. The bill passed with strong bi-partisan support, with a vote of 75-22, while picking up 10 new co-authors.
THANK YOU to the following State Representatives who chose conservation over politics, and voted YES to HB 1033.
