 None, however, I feel your pain.  I work as a Lake Manager, and am familiar with non point source
Pollution problems:
  Phosphorus (PO4) mostly adheres to other solid particulate matter, which as runoff, is blown or flushed into surface waters creating the chronic bloom situations which have initiated this legislation, which I’m in favor of.
Pending legislation opinion:      
 Any mandated action designed to improve the biological condition of public and private surface waters, is a friend of mine.  Water is our most precious resource, second being a well educated constituency,  as such, both need to be protected and valued.
