The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has proposed banning marine sanitation device discharges from vessels in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

If this effort is successful, other similar regulations could be enacted in other marine sanctuaries, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The NMMA is currently reviewing the proposal and the environmental impact analysis that NOAA is using to draft this regulation.

Anyone with feedback on the proposed rule that would like to be included in NMMA's official comments should contact Cindy Squires at (202) 737-9766 or csquires@nmma.org.
