Just got 2 letters in the mail from Gov Riley. They were form letters,of course,but it does show someone is reading the e-mails. I just sent another one,asking for fairness,and to veto this bill while we all work together on a fair bill. It's not too late,we have til Monday afternoon. Bombard him with e-mails. He is a politician,he will listen to the strongest voices. Robert Nelems

Just sent him another email about what I thought of his decision. I don't think I'll be getting a Christmas Card from the Gov. of Antiboatingbama...

We are meeting Monday with an attorney that specializes in constitutional law. Many people feel the law will not withstand a court challenge. One plan was to let someone get a citation under the new law and have him take it to court. But now it seems the Marine Police have no intention of writing any tickets under the new law because they feel the same way we do,so we have to approach it another way. My lake survived this one but an Alabama Power lobbyist was overheard telling a buddy that next year Smith Lake will be a target again.If we can get this one thrown out,maybe the power company will back off. This one was ramroded thru,we had no chance to fight it,but next year we hopefullly will be better prepared.

I am a new owner of an "outlawed" boat affected by the recent bill. Although Smith is not affected this time, we need to do something to change the decision and make all Alabama lakes FREE. Our boating group is ready to take action when needed, just let us know.
