Letters to the Editor – 2/24/12

As an avid recreational angler I am urging opposition to HB 1307 – State Boat Act – Fees and Requirements.

This bill will not only negatively impact boat owners and recreational anglers, but the industries they support. The Department of Natural Resources has estimated the economic output generated by recreational anglers at just over $1 billion annually. HB 1307 will directly hurt that output and deter both new and veteran boaters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.
