Oops! Don't Go Fishing Yet

The state Department of Environmental Protection may have gotten a little ahead of itself when it started selling marine waters fishing licenses.

State lawmakers approved a bill to start selling them on June 3. Two days later, they started to sell the licenses for $10 a piece. The problem? Gov. M. Jodi Rell never signed it.
 
The D.E.P. sold about 2,800 of the licenses before realizing the goof.  They won't be refunded until the Governor decides if she'll sign the bill.
