This article concerning the ballast water controls is in the Detriot News, 
8-23-01.

Note:  "Any businesses using shippers that don't comply with ballast water 
standards won't be able to receive DEQ loans, grants or awards."

I'm not familiar with how much DEQ loans, grants, or awards are utilized by 
the businesses using the shipping industry.  Is this really a significant 
penalty?
