NMMA provides marine legislation update

This week in Louisiana, legislation was introduced to create a separate marine product silo regulating dealings between marine product dealers and manufacturers, the National Marine Manufacturers Association said.

“This law does not make substantive changes to existing law, but rather creates separation and clarity,” according to the NMMA.

Additionally, SB 335 would allow out-of-state dealers to participate in a Louisiana product trade show as long as no in-state dealer is already representing that brand.

NMMA staff is closely following the progress of these issues, the association said.

In Illinois, HB 5895 was introduced and would allow the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to provide information to gas stations that would encourage them to offer E15 as an option for customers.

The department also would be able to provide information to gas stations about any financial assistance that may be available to subsidize the cost of providing E15 blended fuel to consumers.

The NMMA plans to draft a letter to state leaders, sharing the facts about E15 and the NMMA's position against it.
