The National Marine Manufacturers Association provided an update on state legislation related to boating.

In Mississippi, a bill that would have established numerous requirements for contracts between marine dealers and manufacturers was not heard prior to a Feb. 1 deadline and has failed.

Also in Mississippi, the legislature did not act before a Feb. 1 deadline, killing a bill that would have required everyone under age 18 and aboard a boat less than 26 feet to wear a life jacket, the NMMA said.

Two bills before the Oklahoma legislature would redefine personal watercraft and bring agreements between PWC dealers and manufacturers under the requirements of the state's automobile franchise protection laws.
