Trump Signs Legislation to Permanently Exempt Shrimpers

December 19, 2018 Southern Shrimp Alliance

The Southern Shrimp Alliance reported that both the House and Senate had finally passed legislation (S. 140) to make permanent a temporary legislative exemption for shrimp fishing vessels from an extremely onerous and unnecessary EPA Vessel Incidental Discharge Permit requirement. SSA is very happy to report that this legislation was sent to the President and has now been signed into law.
