    Done. I have already received two boiler plate responses from each senator saying that it will be some time before they can respond in greater detail.
    Senator Clinton is a little busy at the moment getting her A$$ kicked...

    I received this today.

    Dear Mr. Gargiulo:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding exemptions from Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations for recreational boating. Currently, recreational boaters do not need to obtain operating permits from the EPA, but a recent court decision threatens to eliminate this exemption in September 2008.

    I introduced the Clean Boating Act of 2008 (S. 2766) to ensure that recreational boaters can operate as they always have--without EPA permits. To help protect the health of the nation's waterways, on which recreational boaters depend, the bill also would require the EPA to examine best-management practices for boaters. The bill is pending before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee whose chair, Senator Boxer, is one of several bipartisan cosponsors.

    I am committed to preserving Florida’s waterways without placing an undue burden on recreational boaters. I appreciate your interest in this issue, and I hope you will not hesitate to contact me in the future.

    P.S. From time to time, I compile electronic news briefs highlighting key issues and hot topics of particular importance to Floridians. If you'd like to receive these e-briefs, visit my Web site and sign up for them at

    I got the email this morning:

    Thank you for your recent letter in support of recreational boating. As a member of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, I appreciate knowing of your interest in this matter.

    Recreational boating is part of our proud Texas heritage, and we must strike a balance between the need for environmental regulations and leisure activities. The Environmental Protection Agency regulates large point source polluters, such as commercial shipping vessels, and cruise and cargo ships, under the Clean Water Act. Since 1973, recreational boats have been exempted from obtaining certain permits used to regulate these large vessels. You may be certain that I will continue to support legislative efforts that fully and permanently restore a long-standing regulation that excludes recreational boaters and anglers from federal and state permitting requirements under the Clean Water Act.

    I appreciate having the opportunity to represent the interests of all Texans in the United States Senate. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.
