An Act To Allow Storage of Lobster Traps on Docks

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

Sec. 1. 38 MRSA §480-II  is enacted to read:

§ 480-II Lobster trap storage on docks

The department may not, under this article, prohibit or regulate the storage of lobster traps on docks. For the purposes of this section, "dock" means a dock, wharf, pier, quay or other structure built on the shore or projected into a harbor and used as a landing, storage, loading or unloading area for watercraft.


This bill removes the Department of Environmental Protection's authority, under the Natural Resources Protection Act, to regulate lobster trap storage on docks.
