Florida boating law administrator Capt. Richard Moore was given the Personal Watercraft Industry Association’s 2008 Boating Safety Leadership Award during the annual National Association of State Boating Law Administrators conference in Clearwater Beach, Fla.

Moore is the second recipient of the annual PWIA award, which recognizes an individual in the boating law community who has displayed significant effort in promoting boating safety.

"His dedication and outstanding leadership in promoting boater education and safety helps keep boating one of America's greatest pastimes,” said Maureen Healey, executive director of PWIA, in a statement.

Moore has been instrumental in laying the legislative groundwork for several boating safety initiatives in Florida, according to the PWIA. For example, he has been leading the push for the state legislature to increase Florida's minimum age requirement to operate a PWC from 14 to 16. While the legislation has not yet passed, Moore continues to promote and push for the measure.
