Here’s some recent positive developments on the legislative front.


On August 2, Vicki Webster of the Save The Delta Queen Campaign issued a press release announcing that after Congress reconvenes after Labor Day, Ohio Senator George Voinovich will introduce legislation to continue the Delta Queen’s exemption. That same day, a representative from Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter’s office came to visit the Delta Queen in Pittsburgh. I gave Stan Caldwell a tour of the boat and he had very positive things to say about the future possibilities to Save the Delta Queen.

We all look forward to watching this American drama unfold.

Will Voinovich develop a strategy and garner enough support to push the exemption through?

Will the Delta Queen be purchased by new owners committed to saving her and continuing her cruise operation?

Will individual Americans collectively voice their concern and support to lawmakers and corporate owners in such a chorus that history can be changes?

Stay tuned…
