Erics Sharp's honesty is not praised by the "Sportsmen for Bush" that

harm their own outdoor sports.
Feds not as tough on ballast water
The problem is that the bills would not require shippers to adopt
effective ballast controls until 2015. They would take interim authority away

give enforcement authority to the U.S. Coast Guard, which is neither designed
nor equipped for the job and has failed at it already.
