Left to right, Governor John Baldacci, State Sen. Bruce Bryant (D-Oxford), Representative Mark Bryant (D-Windham), and Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Commissioner Dan Martin speak about the bill sponsored by the Bryant brothers that passed last week. The bill, LD 612, expands the issuance of turkey permits for 2005. Turkey permits had already been issued to a limited number of applicants, but the emergency legislation allows all applicants to receive a permit this year. “This emergency legislation provides a responsible solution to this year’s turkey overpopulation,” said Rep. Mark Bryant, the lead cosponsor of the bill. “I think it’s important that we keep examining options like this that can create revenue while managing conservation efforts.” Courtesy photo
