President Trump vetoes Calif. fishing bill over seafood trade deficit

The bill was sponsored by Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump has vetoed a bill that would have gradually ended the use of large-mesh drift gillnets used exclusively in federal waters off the coast of California.

Trump says the bill would have increased reliance on imported seafood and worsened a multibillion-dollar seafood trade deficit. He also says the bill will not “achieve its purported conservation benefits.”

The bill was sponsored by Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito.

Feinstein says Trump's veto ensures that “more whales, dolphins, sea turtles and other marine species will be needlessly killed.”

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
