I know who the invasive species is and that the folks who came up with the idea to tax non motorized boats. Boats like 10' pontoons and the like.

Here's a snippet of the official press release from the Oregon State Marine Board:

New Fees

* Registered boaters will pay an automatic $5 surcharge as part of their boater registration.
* Out-of-state motorboat operators need to purchase an annual permit for $22 ($20 permit plus $2 agent fee) through ODFW license agents, ODFW offices that sell licenses and on the ODFW Web site. Out-of-state permits will not be sold through boat registration agents or the Oregon State Marine Board.
* Non-motorized boat operators (canoes, kayaks, sailboats, drift boats, etc.) will need to purchase and carry an annual permit. Permits can be purchased starting Dec.1 at ODFW license agents, ODFW offices that sell licenses and on the ODFW Web site for a cost of $7 ($5 permit plus $2 agent fee). Permits are required for both residents and nonresidents and are transferable to other non-motorized craft, but every vessel on the water must have a permit.
* Guides, outfitters, livery operations and boating clubs should purchase their permits directly from the Oregon State Marine Board.

Are they doing this so they can go out give people tickets? I think so.
