Description

Oyster planting grounds; lease assignments. Authorizes the Commissioner of Marine Resources (the Commissioner) to decide which area within a riparian owner's waters shall be assigned for planting oysters and removes the $1.50 fee of such assignment.

The bill changes various provisions related to oyster-planting grounds, including (i) increasing the application fee for an assignment of general or riparian oyster-planting grounds, (ii) authorizing the Commissioner to consider the public benefits and impacts of shellfish aquaculture or whether a transfer or renewal of an oyster-planting lease is in the public interest when determining whether to allow such transfer or renewal of an assignment, (iii) directing the Marine Resources Commission to adopt regulations related to license renewal fees, and (iv) increasing the application fee for a transfer of an oyster-planting lease. The bill contains an emergency clause. Amends § 28.2-600, § 28.2-607, § 28.2-608, § 28.2-613, § 28.2-625, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
