Is the ‘donation’ a new clause? Sorry….wanted to ask this while you are still on it, but happy to wait if you’d like to hold questions. This could be a very slippery slope.
Dana Morse
22:12
Yes please, could be construed as lobbying.
Amanda Gladics
22:42
That's a fantastic addition
Stuart Carlton
25:32
Does the language in the Save our Seas law apply to Great Lakes, as well, or not? Or is it TBD based on program?

With what funding????
Rob Vincent
36:03
Do you know when the first NOFO is expected to be announced?
Fredrika Moser (she/her)
36:05
Right now would it be considered an unfunded mandate?
Jonathan Pennock
36:46
The intent is for commercial fishermen but we think that there are opportunities to connect to aquaculture...
Amanda Gladics
37:01
So, does the NSG program have to implement this regardless of appropriations?
Jonathan Pennock
37:39
I have spoken with the appropriators and they have acknowledged that implementation of the YFDA would require additional appropriations...
Amanda Gladics

Roger. thanks
Fredrika Moser (she/her)

Is there an authorization attached to the Digital Coast Act?
Stephanie Otts
42:22
We’ll check and see if there were authorized funding amounts for the Digital Coast Act.
Terra Bowling

Digital Coast Act authorized $4,000,000 for each fiscal year 2021 through 2025 to carry out the program.
Amanda Gladics
47:18
will states be required to submit new spend plans?
Stephanie Otts
47:59
That’s an open question. The act doesn’t say. They may be allowed to amend their existing plans. Stay tuned for more information from the Fishery Commissions.
