A bill correcting what was called a small problem in last year’s cruise ship initiative has now become law. Sponsored by Juneau Senator Kim Elton, the measure was signed by Governor Palin on the Juneau waterfront this afternoon. The initiative, passed by voters, established cruise ship discharge standards and included an exemption for smaller, older ships. But somewhere on the way to becoming law, the initiative lost the small cruise ship exemption. Now it’s back in.
