C'mon guys this is serious.Take a few minutes and fill out the form letter, I did.Unless you have money to burn,in which case dig a bit deeper.I dont know about you but I could spend 800 bucks on things I want instead of a bilge permit.

We need your help now to pass NEW federal legislation in the Senate that would provide a permanent exemption for recreational boats from the upcoming EPA discharge permit requirement. Remember that if we don't get legislation passed, we all need to get EPA permits to operate our boats effective 9/30/08!

We appreciate the time that many of you have already taken to let your Senators or Representatives know your support of S. 2067 or HR 2550 "The Recreational Boating Act of 2007." Now there is a new Senate Bill #2766 "The Clean Boating Act of 2008", which is more politically viable, and our best chance to eliminate the permit requirement before it comes in effect on September 30, 2008.

Please pick up the phone or email today and ask your Senators to sponsor and vote YES for S 2766. Although Congress is on recess this week and next, we need their staff to hear from us so that this bill can move as soon as the Senators are back in Washington.

Remember to contact both of your Senators:

Senator Joe Biden (D) (202) 224-5042
Thomas Carper (D) (202) 224-2441

New Jersey
Senator Frank Lautenberg (D) (202) 224-3224
Senator Robert Menendez (D) (202) 224-4744

Thanks for your ongoing help with this issue.
