Boating Industry provisions to be included in Coast Guard Reauthorization Bill
from Boating Industry
Recently, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2019 (H.R. 3409). NMMA played a critical role in shaping the legislation, which includes provisions that would improve the safety of the 142 million Americans who take to the water each year. Specifically, the bill includes language that would mandate the wear of engine cut-off devices for boats under 26 feet while under way – an important safety measure that law enforcement, manufacturers, and the recreational boating community strongly support.
