throwing copper

A group called the Recreational Boaters of California is protesting potential legislation, SB 623 [Kehoe] which would prohibit recreational boaters state-wide from using copper-based anti-fouling paints on the hulls of their boats. The bill would impose a January 1, 2015 ban on the sale of new recreational boats with anti-fouling paint containing copper, and a January 1, 2019 ban on the use or application of these paints. SB 623 is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Committee on Environmental Quality of Monday, May 2. Read the RBC comments here.
