Hi folks --

The Center for Marine Conservation, PEER, and some Florida scientists have
submitted comments, or are testifying, before Governor Bush this morning on
the topic of the State's fiber optic cabling policy as it impact coral

There is a reasonable chance that there will be a rule-making on the
subject.  Despite the low interest in this subject within the environmental
community, the staff at Florida DEP have done a great job of documenting
damage to the reefs from cables.

But I do think that will be industry's counterpunch this morning: namely --
to state there is no damage.

If you have information of such, send it along.  I can get it where it will
do some good.
