EPA’s coordinated strategy as implementation of the international standards for marine engines and their fuels contained in Annex VI to the International Convention on the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (a treaty called MARPOL). The strategy also includes designation of U.S. coasts as an Emission Control Area (ECA) through an amendment to MARPOL Annex VI. By 2030,

Program Costs

The estimated operational and hardware costs of implementing the coordinated strategy are approximately $1.85 billion in 2020, increasing to $3.11 billion in 2030. The operational costs in 2020 are estimated to be $1.82 billion. Nearly 89 percent of the 2020 costs are attributable to the fuel sulfur provisions. The hardware costs to apply engine controls to U.S.-flagged vessels are expected to be $31.9 million in 2020, increasing to $47.4 million in 2030 as more ships are built to comply with CAA Tier 3 NOx standards.

The impacts of these costs on society are estimated to be minimal, resulting in a small increase in the cost of transported goods. For example, a container ship in liner service across the Pacific could see an increase of about $18 per container, or about a 3 percent increase in operating costs. These costs are expected to be completely passed on to consumers of transported goods

oh those pesky regulations... to comply with a treaty the senate didn't ratify...

heck another three percent tax is nothing... just put it on the pile of other Obama taxes...

The treaty amendment at issue is a 2010 agreement under the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, or MARPOL. The United States has signed onto MARPOL, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has accepted the 2010 amendment.

Domestic enforcement of the amendment is not permitted without ratification by two-thirds of the U.S. Senate, "The only thing they relied on was the treaty amendment in issuing the regulations,"

And the Senate has not voted on this yet.

so we have a do nothing democrat controlled senate and a who cares liberal administration...

and just another regulatory cost (hidden tax) the American consumer will pay..

ever wonder how much Obama's rules (hidden taxes) have cost the consumers and our economy ?

something to remember in November..

or about a 3 percent increase in operating costs. These costs are expected to be completely passed on to consumers of transported goods


and the source of that nasty little comment..
http://www.epa.gov/nonroad/marine/ci/420f09068.htm

for example.. gas is now at about $3.47 with a three percent jump it would increase to about $3.57

just this one product would take another $75 to a $100 dollars out of an average consumer.. but hit business much harder..

and this is just one rule,.. on top of the many Obama has shackled our economy with..
