Description

Oyster inspection tax. Authorizes the Potomac River Fisheries Commission to impose an oyster inspection tax not to exceed $2 per bushel. Currently, under the Potomac River Compact, the Commission can impose an inspection tax that cannot exceed the higher severance tax per bushel on oysters that is imposed by Virginia or Maryland within their respective jurisdictions. The Commission's current per bushel inspection tax for oysters taken from the Potomac River is $1. The bill provides that the proceeds from the tax are required to be used for oyster replenishment-related programs. Both Virginia and Maryland must enact similar acts in order for the change to the Compact to go into effect. Amends § 28.2-1001, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
