The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.


10/3/2011--Introduced.
Cormorant Management and Natural Resources Protection Act - Amends the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to delegate the authority of the Secretary of the Interior under such Act with respect to double-crested cormorants (Phalacrocorax auritus) to a state on the date the Secretary approves a cormorant management plan submitted by such state.
Requires the Secretary to:
(1) approve or disapprove a management plan within 60 days of the plan's submission,
(2) approve such plan if it is in accordance with U.S. obligations under treaties and federal law,
(3) provide to the relevant governor the reasons for disapproving a plan and an opportunity to revise and resubmit the plan,
(4) review each approved state management plan every five years, and
(5) revoke such approval and delegation if the plan or the governor's exercise of delegated authority is not in accordance with such Act or any treaty implemented by such Act. Deems a management plan approved if the Secretary doesn't approve or disapprove it within 60 days after submission.
Applies an approved management plan in lieu of regulations issued under such Act.
Requires the Secretary to conduct educational and informational activities for the owners and operators of aquaculture facilities to improve their efforts to prevent cormorants from consuming aquatic species being reared in such facilities.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
