The Oregon Invasive Species Council is hoping the Oregon Legislature will pass a ban felt-soled boots and waders. The felt is porous and can absorb and release algae and other organisms that threaten Oregon's marine environment. Representative Mike Schaufler says he supports the idea because invasive species is a big, big problem. Other states are considering similar bans and some manufacturers in the sporting industry are stopping production the boots in favor of other non-slip materials. If passed, the ban would go into effect in 2015.
