NMMA Outlines State Reopening Plans


The National Marine Manufacturers Association released a tracking document to be used as a state-by-state guide for boaters and anglers regarding reopening plans, benchmarks and task forces.

The guide can be found here.

Thus far, 20 states have provided information to NMMA: California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

While some have given comprehensive updates, others have provided basic outlines of their reopening plans.

NMMA said the resource will serve as supplemental asset to the group’s outdoor access and manufacturing guideline documents. Like these sources, the new tracking document will be updated regularly.
