Please Read! Everyone!
So I saw a post on here talking about how in September 08' legislation will require the EPA to Tax, or charge boaters for permits to use our waterways. Something about pollution coming from ships emptying their "ballast tanks". The problem is, every boater will be affected, even recreational boaters without ballast tanks, including PWC's!
the previous poster had links to boatUS.com/gov and another to find who my local govenator/politions were. I sent an email to all of those bastards urging not to support such legislation.
Well I got a call today from (i think his name was john) some kind of government outreach person. he said there is new legislation that would exempt recreational boaters/pwc'ers from this tax/permit fee. Its called HR2550.
Send more emails to your local government to stand behind this piece of legislation. The last thing we need is to have to pay an extra hundred bucks for the same thing we are already doing, AND WE DON'T EVEN HAVE BALLAST TANKS!!!
Also can that previous poster hit us up with those links again? plz
Thanks for your time.
