     that is designed, constructed, or adapted to carry ballast 
     water while such commercial vessel is operating in navigable 
     waters of the United States.
       (2) Exempted vessels.--Subsection (a) shall not apply to a 
     commercial vessel--
       (A) that continuously takes on and discharges ballast water 
     in a flow-through system, if such system does not introduce 
     aquatic nuisance species into navigable waters of the United 
     States, as determined by the Secretary;
       (B) in the National Defense Reserve Fleet that is scheduled 
     for disposal, if the vessel does not have ballast water 
     management systems or the ballast water management systems of 
     the vessel are inoperable;
       (C) that discharges ballast water consisting solely of 
     water taken aboard from a public or commercial source that, 
     at the time the water is taken aboard, meets the applicable 
     regulations or permit requirements for such source under the 
     Safe Drinking Water Act (42 U.S.C. 300f et seq.);
       (D) in an alternative compliance program established

     water discharge standard on the day before the date of the 
     enactment of this Act.
       (B) Termination of exemption.--The Secretary shall 
     terminate the exemption for a class of commercial vessels 
     described in subparagraph (A) if the Secretary--
       (i) based on testing using water from the Great Lakes, 
     approves a ballast water management system for such class of 
     vessels under section 5005 of this title or subpart 162.060 
     of title 46, Code of Federal Regulations (or similar 
     successor regulation);
       (ii) determines that such ballast water management system 
     meets the practicability criteria described in section 
     5006(b)(2) with respect to such class of vessels complying 
     with the ballast water discharge standard;
       (iii) determines that requiring such class of vessels to 
     comply with the ballast water discharge standard is 
     operationally practicable for such class of vessels; and
       (iv) in consultation with the Administrator, determines 
     that the most probable environmental benefits, as described 
     in subparagraph (E), resulting from a requirement that such 
     class of vessels comply with the ballast water discharge 
     standard exceed the most probable economic costs, as 
     described in subparagraph (F), resulting from such 
     compliance.
       (C) Timing of determinations.--
       (i) In general.--Not later than one year after the approval 
     and determinations described in clauses (i), (ii), and (iii) 
     of subparagraph (B) are made, the Secretary, in consultation 
     with the Administrator, shall determine whether the benefits 
     described in clause (iv) of such subparagraph exceed the 
     costs described in such clause (iv).
       (ii) Reconsideration.--If the benefits described in 
     subparagraph (B)(iv) do not exceed the costs described in 
     such subparagraph for a class of commercial vessels described 
     in subparagraph (A), the Secretary, in consultation with the 
     Administrator, shall reconsider the determination of the 
     Secretary under clause (i)--

       (I) if a petition is received from a Governor of a Great 
     Lakes State that--

       (aa) includes new data or science not considered during 
     such determination; and
       (bb) is submitted not less than one year after such 
     determination; or

       (II) not later than five years after such determination.

       (D) Compliance deadline.--A class of commercial vessels for 
     which the exemption under subparagraph (A) has been 
     terminated under subparagraph (B) shall comply with the 
     ballast water discharge standard after completion of the 
     first scheduled dry docking of each such vessel that 
     commences on or after the date that is three years after the 
     date that the Secretary informs the owner or operator of such 
     vessel of such termination.
       (E) Most probable environmental benefits described.--The 
     most probable environmental benefits resulting from a 
     requirement that a class of commercial vessels described in 
     subparagraph (A) comply with the ballast water discharge 
     standard are the net environmental benefits, as determined by 
     the Administrator--
       (i) gained from the most probable reduction in risk of 
     establishment of aquatic nuisance species in navigable waters 
     of the United States within the Great Lakes and Saint 
     Lawrence River resulting from compliance with subsection (a) 
     by such class of vessels; and
       (ii) as reduced by the extent to which such environmental 
     benefits most probably would not be achieved as a result of 
     the most probable risks of such establishment from other 
     vectors.
       (F) Most probable economic costs described.--The most 
     probable economic costs resulting from a requirement that a 
     class of commercial vessels described in subparagraph (A) 
     comply with the ballast water discharge standard are the net 
     costs and foregone revenues resulting from such compliance 
     that most probably will be incurred, as determined by the 
     Secretary, by the--
       (i) owners and operators of such class of vessels, 
     including the costs of installation and maintenance of 
     ballast water management systems not passed on to customers 
     and reductions in business activity due to lifetime reduction 
     in cargo capacity and customer demand for cargo 
     transportation services;
       (ii) customers of such class of vessels, including 
     reductions in business activity, shifts to other 
     transportation modes, and loss of competitiveness as a result 
     of the costs described in clause (i) passed on to such 
     customers; and
       (iii) employees of such owners, operators, and customers, 
     including reductions or foregone increases in jobs, wages, 
     and benefits resulting from costs described in clauses (i) 
     and (ii).

[[Page S6677]]

       (c) Alternative Compliance Program.--The Secretary, in 
     consultation with the Administrator and the Governors of the 
     States, may issue a rule establishing one or more compliance 
     programs that may be used by an owner or operator as an 
     alternative to compliance with the requirements of subsection 
     (a) for a commercial vessel that--
       (1) has a maximum ballast water capacity of less than eight 
     cubic meters; or
       (2) is less than 3 years from the end of the service life 
     of the commercial vessel, as determined by the Secretary.
       (d) Reception Facilities.--
       (1) In general.--Notwithstanding the requirements under 
     subsection (a), an owner or operator may discharge ballast 
     water into an onshore or offshore facility for the reception 
     of ballast water that meets the standards established by the 
     Administrator, in consultation with the Secretary, under 
     paragraph (2).
       (2) Issuance of standards.--Not later than one year after 
     the date of the enactment of this Act, the Administrator, in 
     consultation with the Secretary, shall publish a rule in the 
     Federal Register that establishes reasonable and practicable 
     standards for reception facilities to receive vessel ballast 
     water to mitigate adverse effects of aquatic nuisance species 
     on navigable waters of the United States.
       (3) Transfer standards.--The Secretary, in coordination 
     with the Administrator, may promulgate standards for the 
     arrangements necessary on a vessel to transfer ballast water 
     to a facility.

       (a) Ballast Water Management Systems That Render Organisms 
     Nonviable.--Notwithstanding chapter 5 of title 5, United 
     States Code, part 151 of title 33, Code of Federal 
     Regulations (or similar successor regulation), and part 162 
     of title 46, Code of Federal Regulations (or similar 
     successor regulation), a ballast water management system that 
     renders nonviable organisms in ballast water at the 
     concentrations prescribed in the ballast water discharge 
     standard shall be approved by the Secretary, if--
       (1) such system--
       (A) undergoes type approval testing at an independent 
     laboratory designated by the Secretary under such 
     regulations; and
       (B) meets the requirements of subpart 162.060 of title 46, 
     Code of Federal Regulations (or similar successor 
     regulation), other than the requirements related to staining 
     methods or measuring the concentration of living organisms; 
     and
       (2) such laboratory uses a testing method described in a 
     final policy letter published under subsection (c)(3).
       (b) Prohibition on Biocides.--The Secretary shall not 
     approve a ballast water management system under subsection 
     (a) or subpart 162.060 of title 46, Code of Federal 
     Regulations (or similar successor regulations), if such 
     system--
       (1) uses a biocide or generates a biocide that is a 
     pesticide, as defined in section 2 of the Federal 
     Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (7 U.S.C. 136), 
     unless the biocide is registered under that Act or the 
     Administrator has approved the use of the biocide in such 
     ballast water management system; or
       (2) uses or generates a biocide the discharge of which 
     causes or contributes to a violation of a water quality 
     standard under section 303 of the Federal Water Pollution 
     Control Act (33 U.S.C. 1313).
       (c) Approval Testing Methods.--
       (1) Draft policy.--Not later than 60 days after the date of 
     the enactment of this Act, the Secretary, in coordination 
     with the Administrator, shall publish a draft policy letter, 
     based on the best available science, describing type approval 
     testing methods and protocols for ballast water management 
     systems that may be used in addition to the methods 
     established in subpart 162.060 of title 46, Code of Federal 
     Regulations (or similar successor regulation)--
       (A) to measure the concentration of organisms in ballast 
     water that are capable of reproduction;
       (B) to certify the performance of each ballast water 
     management system under this section; and
       (C) to certify laboratories to evaluate such treatment 
     technologies.
       (2) Public comment.--The Secretary shall provide for a 
     period of not more than 60 days for the public to comment on 
     the draft policy letter published under paragraph (1).
       (3) Final policy.--
       (A) In general.--Not later than 150 days after the date of 
     the enactment of this Act, the Secretary, in coordination 
     with the Administrator, shall publish a final policy letter 
     describing type approval testing methods for ballast water 
     management systems capable of measuring the concentration of 
     organisms in ballast water that are capable of reproduction 
     based on the best available science that may be used in 
     addition to the methods established in subpart 162.060 of 
     title 46, Code of Federal Regulations (or similar successor 
     regulation).
       (B) Revisions.--The Secretary shall revise the final policy 
     letter published under subparagraph (A) as additional testing 
     methods are determined by the Secretary, in coordination with 
     the Administrator, to be capable of measuring the 
     concentration of organisms in ballast water that are capable 
     of reproduction.
       (C) Considerations.--In developing a policy letter under 
     this paragraph, the Secretary, in coordination with the 
     Administrator--
       (i) shall consider a testing method that uses organism grow 
     out and most probable number statistical analysis to 
     determine the concentration of organisms in ballast water 
     that are capable of reproduction; and
       (ii) shall not consider a testing method that relies on a 
     staining method that measures the concentration of organisms 
     greater than or equal to 10 micrometers and organisms less 
     than or equal to 50 micrometers.

     SEC. 5006. REVIEW AND RAISING OF BALLAST WATER DISCHARGE 
                   STANDARD.

       (a) Effectiveness Reviews.--
       (1) Six-year review.--
       (A) In general.--Not later than January 1, 2024, and 
     subject to petitions for review under paragraph (3), the 
     Administrator, in consultation with the Secretary, shall 
     complete an effectiveness review to determine whether, based 
     on the application of the best available technology 
     economically achievable, the ballast water discharge standard 
     can be revised such that ballast water discharged in the 
     normal operation of a vessel contains--
       (i) less than 1 organism that is living or has not been 
     rendered nonviable per 10 cubic meters that is 50 or more 
     micrometers in minimum dimension;
       (ii) less than 1 organism that is living or has not been 
     rendered nonviable per 10 milliliters that is less than 50 
     micrometers in minimum dimension and more than 10 micrometers 
     in minimum dimension;
       (iii) concentrations of indicator microbes that are less 
     than--

       (I) 1 colony-forming unit of toxicogenic Vibrio cholera 
     (serotypes O1 and O139) per 100 milliliters or less than 1 
     colony-forming unit of that microbe per gram of wet weight of 
     zoological samples;
       (II) 126 colony-forming units of escherichia coli per 100 
     milliliters; and
       (III) 33 colony-forming units of intestinal enterococci per 
     100 milliliters; and

       (iv) concentrations of such additional indicator microbes 
     and of viruses as may be specified in regulations issued by 
     the Secretary, in consultation with the Administrator and 
     such other Federal agencies as the Secretary and the 
     Administrator consider appropriate.
       (B) Alternative revised standard.--If the Administrator 
     finds--
       (i) that the ballast water discharge standard cannot be 
     revised to reflect the level of stringency set forth in 
     subparagraph (A), the Administrator shall determine whether 
     the application of the best available technology economically 
     achievable would result in a reduction of the risk of 
     introduction or establishment of aquatic nuisance species 
     such that the ballast water discharge standard can be revised 
     be more stringent than the standard set forth in section 
     151.2030 or 151.1511 of title 33, Code of Federal 
     Regulations, as in effect on the date of the enactment of 
     this Act; or
       (ii) that the best available technology economically 
     achievable is more stringent than the standard under 
     subparagraph (A) with respect to a class of vessels, the 
     Administrator shall determine whether the ballast water 
     discharge standard can be revised for that class of vessels
