A bill that would ban the use of copper antifouling paint on recreational boats in California is delayed until next year at the earliest, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reports.

Although the state Senate passed bill No. 623, its sponsor, state Sen. Christine Kehoe, worked with the Assembly's Appropriations Committee to delay action on the bill while they continue discussions with marine, environmental and other stakeholders.
