copper bottom paint

Is there an update on ban of bottom paints with copper?

California and Washington had banned copper a few years ago.

Curious, if the ban is still in effect...and if so how long before the copper ban reaches the Great Lakes.

Where did you get yours? I earn my living maintaining boats in California painted with copper-based anti fouling paint, testified before the state Senate about the ban legislation and even co-authored an amendment to the legislation. I'm pretty sure I know what I'm talking about when I tell you no law was ever passed in California banning copper-based anti fouling paints.
