If you read the bill as written again, I believe it only refers to blinds that the state does not currently control on Reelfoot, AKA Registered Blinds.
Only when the currently registered (Grandfathered/Private) blinds are realized back to public domain do they go into an auction pool.
I can see some of the blinds being leased by a guide in name only, to subvert the intent of the legislation which is to guarantee steady tourism dollars to the area and it's residents.
I can also see where any new "Change of Guard" in these better locations may end up a "Weenie Roast".
Also, I can see some blind not receiving bids or possibly being removed to enhance other blinds opportunities and increase overall hunter satisfaction.
With all that said I can also see this bill never leaving committee!
I tend to agree on all points.
