As an after affect of tightening up our borders, it seems the little guy was caught up in the legislation. The Maritime Transportation Security Act is intended to provide additional security clearances for workers in the nation’s ports. This includes longshoremen, truckers, port employees and others. But it seems that the way the bill is worded, it was to include ALL who worked in border waters.

In order to work in border waters, you are required now to obtain a Transportation Worker Identification Credenential (TWIC) which will cost $132.50. Under current law, any individual with a Coast Guard-issued license or document will be required to also purchase a TWIC by April 2009. Well guess what, folks... licensed fishing guides on the borders need to carry Coast Guard licenses and hence, need to get a TWIC. Seems Coleman is trying to fix this...

Rest of the story

Be a good idea to give Klobuschar and Oberstar a call and see if they will help out Colemen on this. Those guides don't make much as it is. I imagine this also effects the Superior Charter Captains as well.
