Recreational Boaters of California is working to keep recreational boating funds from being reallocated for commercial vessel cleanup.

Boaters are encouraged to contact their elected representatives on the Assembly Transportation Committee to urge a “no” vote on AB 2092 unless the bill is amended so that recreational boating funds will not be used to rid the waterways of abandoned commercial vessels.

The RBOC says it is “greatly concerned” that, as currently written, AB 2092 would open up the use of boater fuel tax dollars and registration fees for this purpose.

The bill is scheduled to be considered and voted on at the April 18 hearing of the Assembly Transportation Committee.
