Maybe a federal policy like the one rejected by the US Senate in 2008 because it was not fast enough for Senator Boxers state rights, would work. Industry has won as usual with a weak policy purposed by the commander and chiefs Coast Guard, and a myriad of conflicting state regulation impossible to enforce, without an infrastructure interested or capable of insuring compliance. Even the presidential infinitives program for oceans seems to want to try and zone these problems associated with pollution from ocean use. Unfortunately this is more of the same policy of solution being the solution to pollution.
