I am composing my letters and faxes as I speak. GREAT WAKE UP CALL HERE!!
I also have learned something thru the years in dealing with these kind of enviromental protection laws.
You have got to get the real facts compiled and ready to present to the media as a counterpoint for the distortions that these EPA people use to justify their "GRAVEYTRAIN" jobs. I have already read and will forward to this thread the names and addresses of two congress persons who are sponsoring a bill to exempt smaller recreational boats from this measure as this bill was really trying to address large ship discharge which really is a BIG enviromental problem!
We need to get a few highly recognized expert professionals in discharge and present the total recreational discharge numbers versus the commercial large shipping discharge numbers and when shown as a percentage of total discharge, the contribution from recreational interests versus commercial will be so small it should support this exemption!
(kinda a run on sentence-C in English 1A)
Wake up Boaters! Your elected politicians are awake tonight!!
