Beach Erosion Control District:
On the Senate side, Sen. Mary Beth Carozza’s (R-38) beach erosion control district bill, which would allow more construction activity on the lower east side of Ocean City, is working its way through hearings.
Carozza said there’s an “immediate need” for its passage this year to “bring the historic Ocean City Life-Saving Museum into compliance with the federal American Disabilities Act” and to use previously approved funding.
Senate Bill 537, which would allow for the implementation of a shrimp fishery in the state, is also moving. Sonny Gwin, a commercial fisherman from West Ocean City, testified on March 1 in Annapolis and said data collected from allowing participation in the new fishery would be “valuable” for the fishery and for the insight into future stock shifts in other fisheries.
“During current uncertain times with supply chain issues and food shortages, our commercial seafood harvesters consistently provide local, relatively inexpensive, unprocessed food choices,” Carozza added. “But watermen are taking a risk when beginning to engage in a new fishery. They deserve our support in making this pilot program a workable, flexible alternative.”
