Senate Roll Call 549 on
2017 House Bill 5095: Adopt Coast Guard ballast water discharge permit standards

To require oceangoing vessels to comply with a "Federal Aquatic Nuisance Rule" on ballast water discharges as a condition of using Michigan ports, unless the rule is weakened or other states in a Great Lakes Compact adopt more stringent rules, in which case those would apply instead. Michigan adopted its own standards in 2006, which was before the Coast Guard finalized theirs in 2012.
