NYCAP- we already pay for the dredging everytime we buy fuel. Instead they take that money and spend it elsewhere. There's around $0.58 of tax on every single gallon of fuel you buy on the water, which is earmarked for maintaining the waterways. Perhaps we should not give Iran $4 billion dollars in aid over the last 5 years and we should spend that money here, don't ya think? What are they using it for, to further their nuclear weapons development that they claim they're not doing. If they collect a tax on marine fuel for the purpose of maintaining the waterways they're collecting said tax on. Then it should be used for the purpose it is taxed for. The NC government collects millions of dollars of marine fuel tax just in the Oregon inlet area alone, yet how much of that have they used to dredge the very same area they're collecting the tax from, next to none of it. Same goes for SC and GA. When was the last time ANYONE has seen a dredge operating on the ICW in GA, well over 10 years ago. Who gets hurt. All of the locals, the local economies, and the local businesses. Meanwhile the amount of aide the U.S. gives to foriegn countries that do NOTHING for us, is well over $5 billion dollars per year, if not $10 billion.
