Senator Durbin expresses continued opposition to the efforts by owners of the Ludington Michigan based SS Badger carferry to continue the practice of dumping coal ash from the boilers of the carferry SS Badger into the waters of Lake Michigan. Each year the vessel dumps more than 500 tons and a recent effort by two Republican congressmen would have exempted the act in perpetuity. Failing to pass a permanent exemption, the owners of the SS Badger now seek a permit from the EPA to continue dumping coal ash for another 5 years. close
