    Once again more ridiculous legislation in New York State….how about the firewood transportation law….the average person going to the ADKs. has to obey a law which applies only to firewood, yet loggers are excused and can cut and/or transport green Ash even with impunity…..make sense…I think not!

    The current system is inadequate and outdated. We need a new comprehensive law. Boat inspections and cleaning, if needed, need to be mandatory EVERYWHERE in the Adirondacks [and all of NY] and there has to be strict enforcement and real consequences for anyone who flouts the law.
