Proposal stalls to eliminate Cal Boating

Posted on

A proposal to eliminate California’s independent Department of Boating and Waterways, or Cal Boating, was taken off the agenda for today’s meeting of the California Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Subcommittee.

“We are very pleased by the committee’s decision and appreciate this clear statement in support of sustaining an independent Cal Boating,” said Dave Breninger, president of Recreational Boaters of California, in a statement. “The boating community has been speaking with a strong and unified voice and we will continue our vigilance.”

Breninger says Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s proposal to eliminate Cal Boating could still surface in the state assembly, in a formal reorganization proposal, or even among the budget solutions the governor plans to release. RBOC continues to urge boaters to contact the governor and their legislators in opposition to the proposed elimination of Cal Boating.

    Govenor Schwarzenegger:
    I have grave concerns regarding the proposal to iliminate the independent Cal Boating Department of Boating and Waterways. 
    It would seem that it is an effort to obtain the money obtained from boating gas taxes etc. and use those funds for matters unrelated to boating.
    Further, Department of Boating and Waterways is necessary for the orgainized and efficient oversight of the boating community and should remain in it’s present design.
    Thank you for your attention in this regard.
    Frank G. Turner, SAG (Vote “NO”)
