Re: E-M:/ Proposed Live Fire zones in ferry crossing route


Regarding this proposal for live firing ranges on the Great Lakes, does anyone have the either the address or email address to post comments to? Comments are due tomorrow. Also, where can the proposal be found? Are depleted uranium rounds considered in this proposal?

From the Muskegon Chronicle:

Thirteen of the proposed firing ranges are on Lake Michigan, and four of those are in areas regularly traversed by charter fishing boats, sailboats and cross-lake car ferries that operate out of Muskegon and Ludington, according to Coast Guard records.
And the Freep editorial page:
The Coast Guard owes the citizens of the Great Lakes region a series of public meetings on the Guard's plan to designate 34 "safe zones" in the lakes for target practice with heavy machine guns and live ammunition.
