Deletes the proposed changes to GS 143B-289.54, which (1) amended the requirements for the Marine Fisheries Commission membership; (2) specified that other than routine communications sent from Division staff to all Commission members, any electronic, oral, or other communications among a majority of the Commission is considered an official meting; and (3) required publication of the meeting agenda. Deletes the proposed changes to GS 143B-289.57, which amended requirements for the Marine Fisheries Commission Advisory Committees, including (1) decreasing the number of standing advisory committees and regional advisory committees; (2) required the chair to be designated based on recommendations by the Division; (3) made provisions governing standing advisory committees also applicable to regional advisory committees; and (4) added the requirement that if the Commission rejects a conclusion or recommendation from an advisory committee, the Commission must provide its reasons for doing so, in writing.
Amends GS 113-132 by removing the proposed language that specified that the Marine Fisheries Commission does not have jurisdiction over matters clearly within the jurisdiction of the Department of Environmental Quality, including policy matters.
