Empire Pass Not Excepted at Sampson or Seneca Launches in Finger Lakes Discussion Posted June 23 Quote You guys are right they should probably give it back to the state so it can be a s*** hole again Don't remember anyone saying that. Just saying the Empire Pass should be honored. Can't believe the equipment is that expensive or technical to put into place. After all, they spent 7.5 million to renovate Sampson (most of which was taxpayer dollars), whats another few bucks to scan an Empire Pass. I have a call into Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation for what its worth. Since the Finger Lakes Times carried the article, maybe they would be willing to ask a few questions on the fishermen's behalf. I'll call them tomorrow.
