U.S. Congress to Vote on "Dolphin Deadline"

-

Washington, DC – The Washington Times, an influential conservative daily newspaper, has weighed in on a controversial bill (HR 4075) which would defer compliance with the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

The Act called for commercial fisheries to reduce marine mammal casualties to near-zero by April, 2001. Five years after that so-called "Dolphin Deadline", the Administration’s 2004 efforts to press the industry toward compliance are in the crosshairs of HR 4075, which would effectively remove compliance timelines from the books.

The full Washington Times commentary, which advocates scuttling HR 4075, can be viewed here.
