Just got an email from BoatUS - Might be old news for some, but I hadn't seen it...

Dear BoatU.S. Member,

Thanks to some great teamwork, the threat of a new EPA discharge permit for all your boats is gone!


On Tuesday night, President Bush signed into law "The Clean Boating Act of 2008," which gives recreational boats a permanent exemption for the court imposed EPA discharge permit.

I thank each of you for helping create this victory for boating. Every time we asked for your help, you were there to push the legislation further down the path towards successful passage. You contacted your Members of Congress and helped them understand the importance of boating in your life. And Congress heard the loud voices of tens of thousands of boaters! Nice work!

Enjoy the rest of the summer on the water!

Exactly why this thread lifted my spirits a little. For the past handful of years it has seemed everytime I was for or against something, I'd be on the losing side.

Sorry for cracking a smile. :unhappy1:

Seeing gov't work firsthand I agree with Big Macz that each officials personal life's needs/wants/hobbies will dictate how they vote on certain issues.
