COMMITTEE MEETING CANCELED – NO QUORUM

Lack of a quorum canceled a Senate Planning and Environment Protection Committee meeting Monday morning.
The meeting, chaired by Sen. Adlah "Foncie" Donastorg, was to hear bills to enact the Environmental Leadership Pollution Prevention Act, to establish a mid-island library on St. Thomas and to allow Planning and Natural Resources officers to issue citations to persons who violate fishing, hunting and wildlife laws.
Committee members Norman Jn Baptiste and Almando "Rocky" Liburd sent letters excusing themselves from the meeting, as did testifier Claudette Lewis, assistant PNR commissioner. Donald "Ducks" Cole was the sole committee member present.
Donastorg adjourned the meeting and said a new date would be set soon.
