Background: Michigan Sen. Ken Sikkema, R-Grandville, has introduced
legislation to put all ships in Michigan waters under the regulations of the
state's Clean Water Act.
The bill would require any ballast water they carry in from outside waters
to meet a new sterilization standard to help prevent the transfer of
invasive species.
