Clean water vs. cruise ships may land back in Legislature's lap

Regulation of Alaska’s cruise industry could be headed to court. Clean-water activists have taken steps that could lead to legal action against ships they claim are not providing enough information about ocean discharges. The industry says it’s working hard to make its discharges safe. But it’s also threatening to challenge state requirements it says may be unreasonable. The conflict could end up before the legislature.
