NMMA releases economic-impact report for industry

The NMMA released new infographics showing boating’s economic impact by district, state and for the nation overall.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association released new infographics showing boating’s economic impact by district, state and for the nation overall.

The data are gleaned from the comprehensive Statistical Abstract that the NMMA annually prepares.

The NMMA said it continuously monitors legislation and regulatory issues in all 50 states, pursuing the marine industry's objectives.

State governments frequently introduce and enact laws within months, requiring a quick response on state-level issues, the NMMA said.

The NMMA has developed the infographics to illustrate the economic impact of recreational boating for each state to educate the public and key decision makers on regulatory issues.

The idea is that facts such as boating’s $121.5 billion annual economic impact would convince lawmakers not to pass laws that would threaten the industry.
