Since COVID-19 hit, the federal government has insisted that we “follow the science” to protect ourselves. Other parts of the federal bureaucracy, however, make life-altering decisions without the benefit of science.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has proposed a regulation that, if enacted, would have a devastating impact on a major part of South Carolina’s economy, particularly along the coast.
The National Marine Fisheries Service, an arm of NOAA, would restrict speeds for boats between 35 feet and 65 feet to 10 knots (12.5 mph) for almost six months every year during prime boating and fishing season. The speed limit would extend as far as 60 miles into the Atlantic covering the entire Eastern Seaboard.
We need you to protect and expand boating and fishing in the Palmetto State!
