VIDA Discussions with Jennifer Carpenter, Craig Montesano, and Caitlyn Stewart

VIDA Passage_ What It Means and What’s Next

On December 4, President Trump signed the Vessel Incidental Discharge Act into law. This milestone achievement is the result of an intensive, years-long advocacy effort led by AWO and its members to reform a broken system of overlapping and conflicting federal and state regulations for ballast water and other vessel discharges. Now that VIDA has been enacted, how will the law change the status quo, and what should AWO members expect as implementation proceeds?
This webinar features discussion of these topics and insights from Jennifer Carpenter, AWO's Executive Vice President &COO, Craig Montesano, Vice President – Legislative Affairs and Caitlyn Stewart, Director – Regulatory Affairs.
