On Wednesday, October 10, the Senate passed the America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018, and it now awaits President Trump’s signature. The bill has been a major priority for the recreational boating industry, as it contains numerous provisions that affect issues such as efforts to combat aquatic invasive species, dredging programs, everglades restoration, and controlling the numerous algae blooms that are plaguing America’s waterways.
MRAA and other representatives of recreational boating have worked for months to ensure that the industry’s needs are appropriately met. When signed into law, this good piece of legislation will help to improve the experience of everyone involved with getting recreational boaters out on the water.
