Law­mak­ers to make amend­ments to Wa­ter Trans­porta­tion Law

The UB Post - - FRONT PAGE -

Dur­ing a meet­ing of the Se­cu­rity and For­eign Pol­icy Stand­ing Com­mit­tee held on Wednesday, some leg­is­la­tors pointed out that the Law on Wa­ter Trans­porta­tion should be amended as poor laws and reg­u­la­tory en­vi­ron­ment re­gard­ing wa­ter trans­porta­tion neg­a­tively af­fect the ecosys­tems of do­mes­tic lakes and rivers.

MP L.Bold stated that peo­ple are us­ing old boats that were used in other lakes or seas abraod in do­mes­tic fresh wa­ter lakes, but old boats are pol­lut­ing lakes by bring­ing mi­cro bac­te­ria and toxic mat­ters that live in a ma­rine en­vi­ron­ment.

Leg­is­la­tor D.Ter­bishdagva em­pha­sized, “Peo­ple are bring­ing old cheap boats that are banned by for­eign coun­tries into do­mes­tic rivers and lakes. Re­mov­ing toxic mat­ters pol­luted by the boats from lakes or rivers will be very dif­fi­cult, maybe im­pos­si­ble, few years later. Par­lia­ment should fo­cus on adopt­ing new amend­ments to the Law on Wa­ter Trans­porta­tion, which will be put for­ward by some leg­is­la­tors to Par­lia­ment to re­solve this en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sue quickly.”
