Marine Council NEEDS your HELP RIGHT NOW!

 

Late today in Tallahassee an amendment was introduced that if passed would allow most Florida counties to restrict anchoring.

 

We NEED YOUR HELP NOW because this anti-boating amendment will be debated on the Senate floor - TODAY, May 1, 2014.

 

Please OPPOSE any amendments filed to these bills! 

 

Marine Industries strongly opposes the amendments filed by Senator Smith as it would allow local governments to regulate the distance a boat can anchor overnight from a private residence on state sovereign submerged lands.

 

This is an example of why the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission must continue to pursue the Anchoring and Mooring Pilot program so we can have uniformity on our state waters.  Numerous local ordinances, city or county, will only create confusion on our state waters!

 

Please CLICK HERE for contact information to all of the Senators to send an email or call to urge all senators to vote NO to any amendment offered to Senate Bill 1126 or House Bill 955 - the FL Fish and Wildlife Commission bill.

We apologize for the late notice, but we need to raise our voices LOUDLY in Tallahassee right now.

 

Many thanks for your help!
