Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Ballast water reporting system. Designates the Hampton Roads Maritime Association as the Virginia Marine Resources' agent for collecting the Ballast Water Control Report forms filled out by ship operators. The bill also exempts an operator or a ship agent of an operator from having to file a report if the vessel's previous port of call is within the United States Exclusive Economic Zone and a report had been previously filed when the vessel entered its first U.S. port of call. The Virginia Marine Resources Commission will submit copies of the operators’ reports to the national clearinghouse on a quarterly basis with the Hampton Roads Maritime Association submitting the reports to the Commission monthly for quarterly federal filing.
