TWIC Reversal Bill Purposed.


Recommended Posts

To all MCBA Captains:

Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN) has proposed legislation (S.3377) that would do away with the requirement of small boat operators (read that: Charterboat operators such as ourselves) from obtaining a TWIC card. NACO has sent an email to its members suggesting that this bill will be acted on soon, and all interested parties should contact their senators indicating their support for this legislation.

I have attached a word document which discribes the bill in more detail. You may use the information below to contact our Michigan Senators.

Do it today, or do it very soon.

I Just E-mailed both Senators concerning the TWIC cards and my urgings to them to retract this stupid law/rule. Do you know I still have not recieved my card. They did cash my check but lost all my paper work and don't seem very compitent to find it or even a little ancious to let me apply for another.

Don't get to excited yet Bill.

I'm not sure if this Reversal is just for Michigan Charter Captains or not. Plus, I just recieved a notice in the mail from the Coast Guard yesterday, telling me the deadline for having a TWIC card has been moved back, but anybody without one after this new expiration date will not be able to get or re-new their Captains License.:mad:
