Information regarding the Act:
Recreational Boating Act 2007
In September, 2006, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a 34-year-old exemption for recreational boats from an EPA regulation intended to stop ballast water discharge from ocean-going freighters and tankers in U.S. waters.
If a higher court or the U.S. Congress does not act, 18 million boats will be required to have special EPA permits that could cost $800 or more.
