EXPECTED 2006-2007 RULE-MAKING ACTIVITY:

If MITSC does decide to propose any rules, the following information would be applicable:

PURPOSE OF THE RULE: To address issues that the State and the Tribes agree require a regulatory solution.
SCHEDULE FOR ADOPTION: 2007 (if at all)
LISTING OF AFFECTED PARTIES: Potentially benefited and regulated parties include Passamaquoddy and Penobscot Tribal Members and non-Tribal Members who fish on MITSC waters.
USE OF CONSENSUS-BASED RULE DEVELOPMENT: Information on any planned MITSC is premised on the concept of consensus. Use of consensus-based rule Adoption of MITSC’s rules cannot occur unless there is agreement by the State of Maine, the Passamaquoddy Tribe, and the Penobscot Nation.
