MarineLog reports that the Offshore Marine Services Association has launched a program to monitor compliance with the Jones Act.
The Offshore Marine Services Association (OMSA) is to use a vessel that it has named the Jones Act Enforcer to gather video and photographic evidence of Jones Act violations. Evidence of violations will be submitted to authorities, made public and shared with the media.
Sounds like the result of a long history of frustration. Otherwise they probably would not be resorting to this sort of action.
Thanks to Hoffman for bringing this to my attention.
It’s going to have to cover a lot of ground.
