Please Pass Poultry Litter Regulation

I live in Virginia and have fished in local rivers with my two sons
and their boy scout troop. Fish can't stay alive in the water, so to
fish you have to wait until they dump trout in at one end and then you
go wait on the banks for the stunned fish to drift downstream and
hopefully come to enough to nibble at a hook. This is not what I want
for my children, never mind my drinking water, so I hope that the
pending legislation passes and helps relieve the problem of
uncontrolled fish (poultry?) waste affecting our local waters.
