Representative Young (R-AK) introduced the Vessel Discharge Evaluation and Review Act (H.R. 5594) to require the Commandant of the Coast Guard to conduct an evaluation and review of certain vessel discharges.  This bill, if enacted into law, would provide for establishment of uniform, environmentally sound standards for discharges incidental to the normal operation of vessels.  It would also prohibit states from adopting their own standards for discharges regulated under the Act.
