The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed changes in the regulations governing the administration of the national Boating Infrastructure Grant Program, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reported.

The proposed rule will clarify current program requirements, adjust the ranking criteria for competitive awards to correspond to the priorities in the Sportfishing and Boating Safety Act of 1998, organize questions and answers to reflect the life cycle of the grant and reword and reformat regulations following federal plain language policy and current rulemaking guidance.
