Senator Rand Paul Gets It Right on Overcriminalization

Senator Rand Paul Gets It Right on Overcriminalization

IFSEA was purportedly designed to help with the enforcement of international fishing standards, but that is not all it does. The IFSEA would also:

* Increase without justification already severe criminal penalties;
* Expand the authority of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to promulgate new regulations that provide for criminal penalties for violations; and
* Provide NOAA with additional funding for law enforcement purposes.
