The Sea Ranger program is a nightmare. I wonder if anyone has studied the cost if this is implemented. It throws out current, working, environmental controls which the cruise industry is voluntarily submitting to and exceeding the requirements.
So if you want to create a new bureaucracy, buy new computers for it, hire employees for it, rent office space for it and dig a monetary pit into which all the supposed taxes will be thrown, go ahead and vote yes.
An industry tax might be a good idea but let's vote this down and get something more palatable.
