Pete, I'm with you. We're lucky that we don't have as severe a problem as other areas with declining numbers. But we all know its only a matter of time.
I live near the marine field office for my area. I'm not sure what the process is for having a rule change considered, but I will stop in on Monday and see if anyone can help me.
I will keep everyone posted as to what they tell me. Hopefully there is a way we can petition for a rule review of some sort.
