WARNING! The proposed lead ban is still alive for fishing although dead for hunting! Please take a minute to comment...unless you like big steel jigs that no fish will bite! See below from EPA and how to comment:
âAs there are no similar jurisdictional issues relating to the agency's authority over fishing sinkers, EPA â as required by law â will continue formally reviewing a second part the petition related to lead fishing sinkers.
âThose wishing to comment specifically on the fishing tackle issue can do so by visiting http://www.regulations.gov. EPA will consider comments that are submitted by September 15.â
Don't let EPA take your sinkers and jigs away!
EPA is considering a ban on lead bullets and fishing lures. Here's a link where you can comment on the regulation. http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-phoenix/epa-considers-ban-on-traditional-ammunition
If you'd like EPA to approve the ban, then don't comment!

Back in August 2009 I paid on line for two toll fees and thought it worked fine...until I received two citations in the mail today! I tried calling the toll free number today to talk to them but it was busy.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? The citation said you can mail them proof of payment but I'd prefer to get some information before another submittal gets "lost" in the shuffle!
