    With this kind of economy today, they're just trying to come up with anything to get the money out of the people.

    I wrote my congresspeople. All three. I got a response today from one:

    This bill would exempt recreational boaters from commercial shipping discharge permits. It is critically important for the protection of aquatic ecosystems that we maintain strong regulations governing the discharge of ballast water into areas such as Lake Michigan. Invasive species or diseases introduced into our Great Lakes by foreign vessels have created many problems - - the zebra mussel, to name an example.

    I share your concerns, however, about the unintended consequences that changes in the interpretation of commercial shipping discharge permit requirements pose for the recreational boating industry. While a companion bill to H.R. 2550 has not been introduced in the Senate, you can be sure I will remember your concerns should this bill be considered by the Senate.

    Thank you again for contacting me. Please stay in touch.

    Nice huh? I'm going to write back again today saying that I fail to see the correlation between industrial shipping and recreational boating.. and ask how an $800 permit will stop a vessel with no ballast tank from dumping ballast water?
