SENATE PAPERS

 

            (1-1)  The following Joint Resolution:  (S.P. 599)

 

 

 

JOINT RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING OCEAN ACIDIFICATION AS A THREAT TO MAINE'S COASTAL ECONOMY, COMMUNITIES AND WAY OF LIFE

 

            WHEREAS, the ocean environment and its resources are vital to the economy, cultural identity and daily lives of many Maine citizens and communities; and

 

            WHEREAS, coastal residents and communities in Maine depend on healthy and abundant ocean resources for their livelihoods, recreation and ways of life; and

 

            WHEREAS, over 10% of jobs in Maine are in ocean-related industries, including live marine resources, marine construction, tourism, recreation, offshore minerals, ship building and marine transportation, resulting in 60,000 jobs and $3,000,000,000 in gross domestic product in 2009; and

 

            WHEREAS, in 2012, live landings and harvestings of Maine soft-shell clams, mahogany quahogs, blue mussels and lobsters totaled more than 154,000,000 pounds with a market value of nearly $356,000,000, and the lobster catch alone accounted for almost 126,000,000 pounds of landings, with a value to the lobstermen of more than $338,000,000; and

 

            WHEREAS, much of Maine's economy is based on tourists that come to see our picturesque coast, harbors and working waterfront communities; and

 

            WHEREAS, the world's oceans have absorbed more than a quarter of the carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere since the start of the Industrial Revolution, causing changes in ocean chemistry known as ocean acidification; and

 

            WHEREAS, ocean acidification is caused primarily by increased atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, and acidification of coastal waters is exacerbated by runoff, pollution and some natural processes; and

 

            WHEREAS, shell-forming marine organisms with calcium carbonate exoskeletons, such as shellfish, lobsters, crabs and plankton, which are the base of the food chain in the Gulf of Maine, are particularly susceptible to the change in the chemical composition of the ocean; and

 

            WHEREAS, 90% of the value of Maine's fisheries comes from shell-producing species such as lobster, which made up 77% of the total value of all Maine landings in 2012; and

 

            WHEREAS, the species that support much of Maine's coastal economy are at risk to changes in the chemical composition of the Gulf of Maine, and these impacts include weakened shells, reduced growth and reproductive success, lowered resistance to disease, increased susceptibility to predation and other changes to biological and physiological processes; and

 


            WHEREAS, ocean acidification has already had significant economic impacts in other parts of the United States, including along the coast of the state of Washington, where acidification killed billions of oyster larvae and nearly destroyed the region's oyster hatcheries, bringing significant economic harm to that state's shellfish industry, which supports 3,200 jobs and generates $270,000,000 annually; and

 

            WHEREAS, the Gulf of Maine has been identified as the most susceptible region on the Eastern Seaboard to ocean acidification, potentially due to the colder and fresher water coming in from the Labrador current, the large proportion of riverine freshwater input and the gulf's semi-enclosed shape; and

 

            WHEREAS, ocean acidification, as one of multiple drivers of environmental change in the Gulf of Maine, has the potential to threaten livelihoods and activities that have been at the core of Maine's coastal communities for hundreds of years; now, therefore, be it

 

            RESOLVED: That We, the Members of the One Hundred and Twenty-sixth Legislature now assembled in the First Regular Session, on behalf of the people we represent, take this opportunity to recognize that ocean acidification, as one of multiple consequences of environmental change in the Gulf of Maine, presents a threat to Maine's coastal economy, communities and way of life; and be it further

 

            RESOLVED: That We support research and monitoring in order to better understand ocean acidification in the Gulf of Maine and Maine's coastal waters, to anticipate its potential impacts on Maine's residents, businesses, communities and marine environment and to develop ways of mitigating and adapting to ocean acidification; and be it further

 

            RESOLVED: That the federal agencies conducting research into ocean acidification or mitigation of these impacts to our coast should prioritize research on those species such as lobster that will further our understanding of how our changing oceans will affect key species that support significant portions of our State's economy; and be it further

 

            RESOLVED: That suitable copies of this resolution, duly authenticated by the Secretary of State, be transmitted to the United States Secretary of Commerce; the United States Secretary of Agriculture; the Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration within the Department of Commerce; the Director of the National Science Foundation; the chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality; the chair of the federal Interagency Working Group on Ocean Acidification; and the Maine Congressional Delegation.

 

 

            Comes from the Senate, READ and ADOPTED.

            WHEREAS, the members of the Joint Select Committee on Maine's Workforce and Economic Future worked together in a nonpartisan manner with input from dozens of experts throughout the State to unanimously support legislation taking steps to move Maine forward towards stronger economic growth and the preparation of Maine's workers and businesses to compete in the global marketplace; and

SENATE PAPERS

 

            (1-1)  The following Joint Resolution:  (S.P. 600)

 

JOINT RESOLUTION MEMORIALIZING THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS TO OPPOSE SECTION 8 OF H.R. 1919, AN ACT TO AMEND THE FEDERAL FOOD, DRUG, AND COSMETIC ACT

 

            WE, your Memorialists, the Members of the One Hundred and Twenty-sixth Legislature of the State of Maine now assembled in the First Regular Session, most respectfully present and petition the United States Congress as follows:

 

            WHEREAS, Section 8 of H.R. 1919, "An Act to Amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act," allows prescription drug manufacturers to decide to supply drug information labels only by electronic means, as opposed to the paper labels currently accompanying prescription drugs upon receipt; and

 

            WHEREAS, a similar provision is not contained in the United States Senate's version of the bill; and

 

            WHEREAS, the United States Congress addressed electronic labeling in 2012 and directed the United States Government Accountability Office to study the potential advantages and associated risks of this labeling and the results of the study are due to be released in July 2013; and

 

            WHEREAS, Congress should await the results of the study it ordered to be undertaken before passing legislation that would require critical medical information, such as information on dangerous side effects and contraindications, to be made available to health care professionals and prescription drug consumers only by electronic means; and

 

            WHEREAS, Maine would be disproportionately negatively affected by Section 8 of H.R. 1919; and

 

            WHEREAS, as of 2011, 16.3% of Maine's population was over 65 years of age, compared to only 13.3% for the nation as a whole; and

 

            WHEREAS, due to its geography, climate and highly dispersed and rural population, significant areas of Maine do not have reliable access to the Internet; and

 

            WHEREAS, Maine relies on the forest products industry to create and maintain jobs and sustainably manage Maine's forests, and that industry would be negatively affected by Section 8 of H.R. 1919 without further study of the effects; now, therefore, be it

 

            RESOLVED: That  We, your Memorialists, the Members of the One Hundred and Twenty-sixth Legislature now assembled in the First Regular Session, on behalf of the people we represent, take this opportunity to urge and request that Section 8 of H.R. 1919 not be passed until the Government Accountability Office study on the effects of required electronic-only labeling for prescription medications is published, reviewed and considered; and be it further


 

            RESOLVED: That We urge and request that this section of the bill not become law without further consideration and mitigation of the disproportionate negative effects on Maine's elderly, rural and highly dispersed population; and be it further

 

            RESOLVED: That suitable copies of this resolution, duly authenticated by the Secretary of State, be transmitted to the President of the United States Senate, to the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and to each Member of the Maine Congressional Delegation.

 

 

            Comes from the Senate, READ and ADOPTED.
