Raymond Pineau submitted three bills this session, one which was signed, and served on the Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee.
The signed bill requires a study to be done on how people with disabilities can gain access to ponds that are 10 acres or larger. The Department of Conservation and the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife are expected to report back to the Agriculture Committee next year with recommendations on how to establish an “appropriate geographic distribution” of ponds that offer accessibility to people with disabilities.
In committee, Pineau helped review legislation that created a tiered system for milk costs, depending on the size of the dairy farm, among other bills.
Pineau could not be reached for comment after the session ended.
